The Oath has added three more members to its cast. It was reported that Sarah Dumont, Billy Malone and Aaron Abrams will appear on the series.
Crackle shared a press statement revealing more about these additions. Check that out below.
“Crackle’s original one-hour drama series The Oath has added cast for three recurring roles including Sarah Dumont (Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse), Billy Malone (Santa Clarita Diet, Code Black) and Aaron Abrams (Hannibal). The series, set to debut in 2018, is currently in production in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Sarah Dumont plays Kate Miller, the beautiful new pit boss at Frank’s casino with a mysterious past. She attracts the attention of Steve who tries to win her over. Kate’s tough exterior has served as an effective defense mechanism so far, but will she let her guard down when Steve comes into her world?
Dumont was one of the leads in Paramount’s Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse and has been seen on The Royals (she recurred), Workaholics (finale) and The League. She is represented by UTA, Primary Wave, and Jackoway Tyerman.
Billy Malone plays Frank Albanese, the casino manager who has been a mentor to Steve Hammond (Ryan Kwanten) since his teenage years. Frank’s unwavering loyalty and guidance provides Steve with a father figure he was lacking from Tom all these years. When Steve and the Ravens recent exploits bring unwanted attention to Frank’s casino their bond is put to the test.
Malone’s recent credits include upcoming feature 9/11 with Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg, Santa Clarita Diet and Code Black. He is represented by Concept Talent Group & Robyn Bluestone Management.
Aaron Abrams plays David Shankman, the arrogant, young hotshot CEO of Helixa Corporation. He cuts a deal with the leader of the Vipers to distribute his new drug Zytocet as “WMD” to keep his company afloat while awaiting FDA approval. This reckless rich kid unknowingly sets in motion a deadly series of events that shape the first season.
Abrams appeared as Brian Zeller throughout all 3 seasons of NBC’s cult hit series Hannibal. He has also appeared on CBS’ NCIS (regular & LA), and Netflix’s Longmire. Last year he shot the Weinstein Company’s Regression with Emma Watson & Ethan Hawke as well as the film festival darling Closet Monster. In the past year- Aaron has been active- first a recurring arc on NBC’s Blindspot (which is still going to date- 6 episodes), a recurring arc on Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, and for good measure guest spots on TNT’s Murder In The First, and most recently ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Next up, Aaron will star alongside Stephen and Robbie Amell in Sci-Fi feature CODE 8. He is represented by Pedro Tapia of CESD and David Dean Portelli at David Dean Management.
They join the previously announced ensemble: Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Cory Hardrict (American Sniper, Gran Torino), Arlen Escarpeta (The Magicians), Katrina Law (Training Day), J.J. Soria (Animal Kingdom, The Fosters), Game of Thrones alum, Sean Bean, Michael Malarkey (“The Vampire Diaries”), Eve Mauro (CSI Miami), Kwame Patterson (The Wire, American Crime Story), Linda Purl (Homeland, True Blood) and Elisabeth R�hm (Law & Order).
Created by Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O, Secrets and Lies), who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which as an undercover officer, the series takes ?an unforgiving look at the complicated dynamics in these organizations and documents the lives of those willing to risk it all, to have it all.
Executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., the gritty, action-packed drama, explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join – only a select few make the cut-but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.”
