Stage Veteran Russell Tovey Boards ABC's QUANTICO

QUANTICO is bringing another stage veteran into the fold.

After Jay Armstrong Johnson boarded the FBI drama at midseason, the show has now enlisted Broadway and West End alum Russell Tovey as a series regular for its second season, according to TVGuide.

The former LOOKING star will play "Harry Doyle, a character who's said to be an adult version of Oliver Twist's the Artful Dodger. He is described as being "just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it's over."

RUSSELL TOVEY just concluded a run in A View From the Bridge on Broadway, after previously appearing on the Great White Way in the National Theatre production of The History Boys playing Rudge, the role he originated in London and subsequently performed around the world. He reprised the role in the film version of the play, directed by Nicholas Hytner. Tovey's other theatre credits include Howard Katz, Henry V, His Girl Friday and His Dark Materials (National Theatre); Plasticine, A Miracle and The Pass (Royal Court Theatre); The Sea andSex With A Stranger (London's West End). His film credits include Pride, Grabbers, The Pass, Mindhorn, and the upcoming The Lady in The Van. His television credits include the role of Kevin in HBO's "Looking," "The Night Manager," "Being Human," "Banished," "Sherlock," "Doctor Who," "Little Dorrit," "Him and Her," and "The Job Lot."

A diverse group of recruits has arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

"Quantico" stars Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, Josh Hopkins as Liam O'Connor, Jake McLaughlin as Ryan Booth, Aunjanue Ellis as Miranda Shaw, Johanna Braddy as Shelby Wyatt, Tate Ellington as Simon Asher, Graham Rogers as Caleb Haas and Yasmine Al Massri as Nimah Amin.

"Quantico" was written by Joshua Safran. Executive producers are Joshua Safran, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Sertner. "Quantico" is produced by ABC Studios.
