Him & Her, and Being Human star Russell Tovey has been tapped for a role in the second season of tv series Quantico Geektown has learnt.
The show, which follows a group of group of young FBI recruits, is split into 2 time periods. The ‘present day’, and flashbacks to show the recruits training time and the Quantico FBI Academy in Virginia. The first season starts with an explosion at New York’s Grand Central Station, where FBI recruit Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) quickly becomes the prime suspect. It soon becomes apparent that Alex has been framed, and the real terrorist may actually be one of her classmates from the academy.
Tovey will join the cast as a series regular playing Harry Doyle, a character described as “mysterious, seductive, and capable of winning hearts and using his charms to his advantage.”
This isn’t Tovey’s first role on US tv, having also starred in HBO’s Looking, which was cancelled after 2 seasons, but will air a final wrap-up movie in July in the US (no UK air date yet) to tie up the storylines.
