Eddie Cahill may soon return to the small screen. The actor, who has appeared on Under the Dome and CSI: NY on CBS, has been cast in Conviction, according to Deadline.
The drama already cast Hayley Atwell from Marvel’s Agent Carter in the lead role, and Cahill will star opposite her character.
Deadline shared more details about Cahill’s role. The news outlet revealed the following:
“Cahill will play the confident and self-assured New York District Attorney Wayne Wallis. Incredibly handsome, magnetic and charismatic, Wallis radiates charm, smarts and political power; he has a clear-cut political future that is as brilliant as his million dollar smile; he is politically ambitious and sharp as a tack. Wallis announces the creation of the Conviction Integrity Unit — and appoints Hayes to lead the charge. There is a history between the two of them — and the dynamic is equal parts lust and hatred.”
Conviction will not interfere with Atwell’s role on Marvel’s Agent Carter if ABC decides to pick up the series. The actress revealed in a recent interview that she has the go ahead to appear on both shows.
There are rumors that Marvel’s Agent Carter has been renewed for a third season, but there has not been any official word on the fate of the series yet.
