The casting change comes just days after Jeff Hephner was announced for the part.

A source told TVLine that the decision was made by series executives following a table read whereupon Hephner was deemed "not a good fit" and was replaced by former CSI: Miami actor Cibrian.


Production on Playboy, which centres on mob-connected attorney Nick Dalton, is due to begin filming next Tuesday in Chicago.
