Breaking Bad alum Emily Rios has been cast opposite Ryan Phillippe in the USA Network drama pilot Shooter, executive produced by Mark Wahlberg.

Written by John Hlavin (Underworld: Awakening) based on the 2007 Paramount feature starring Wahlberg as well as Stephen Hunter’s novel Point Of Impact, the action drama centers on Bob Lee Swagger (Phillippe), an off-the-grid former Marine sniper who is coaxed into action to thwart the killing of the President. Rios will play Nadine Memphis, an ambitious young FBI agent who unravels a conspiracy with Swagger at the center that puts a target on her back and forces her to form an uneasy alliance with him.

Rios made her acting debut in double Sundance award-winner Quinceanera. Known for her work on Breaking Bad as Andrea Cantillo, her other TV credits include The Bridge and a recurring role this season on True Detective. She can also be seen in indie feature Paint It Black, directed by Amber Tamblyn.

Great news, but wait... Wasn't Nick Memphis a male one in the book/movie? Oh, hollywood...

Rios is repped by Domain Talent and Kass Management.
