The Rookie: Feds is adding to its cast. Kevin Zegers and James Lesure are joining the cast of the new spin-off series coming to ABC on Tuesday nights this fall. The pair are joining Niecy Nash-Betts, Frankie Faison, and Felix Solis in the drama series which follows the oldest FBI recruit (Nash-Betts).
“Zegers will play Brendon Acres who is just out of Quantico. Brendon’s got a lot to prove in his first posting – not least because his background as the lead on the long-running TV series Vampire Cop means few people take him seriously. His years of method-actor training led not only to martial arts and gun skills, but also a master’s in computer science.”
Another Deadline report detailed Lesure’s role:
“Lesure will play Carter Hope. Conservative and a by-the-book traditionalist, Carter’s a model FBI agent who joined the bureau after a successful career as a lawyer in the Justice Department. Now he’s got the most challenging task of his career: training the outspoken and outside-the-box rookie Clark, whose style will be a challenge to his painfully won beliefs.”
The Rookie: Feds arrives on September 27th on ABC.
