Joshua Jackson has snagged his first post “Fringe” gig. The actor will be playing a cowboy in a pilot for Showtime called “The Affair.”

Jackson is set to play a cowboy named Cole, who runs a family ranch in Long Island. He is married to Allison (Ruth Wilson), who works at a pancake house after suffering a tragedy, and is working toward getting her life back together.

Staying true to the show’s name, Allison will have an affair with Noah (Dominic West), who is a New Yorker spending his summer on Long Island. Noah has a wife of his own, Helen (Maura Tierney), who doesn’t take well to her husband’s infidelity.

If picked up, “The Affair” is likely to begin airing on Showtime.

What do you think of Jackson’s new role?
