Pierce joins fellow new cast additions Hank Azaria, Sherilyn Fenn and Vinessa Shaw on the Mark Gordon Co-produced drama series. Pierce, repped by Paradigm and Essential Talent, co-stars on NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show.
Raffi Barsoumian is set for a major recurring role on the CW’s most watched series, The Vampire Diaries. He will play Markos, an imposing and charismatic presence with supernatural origins. Barsoumian, repped by Gartner/Green and attorney Mitch Smelkinson, spent the last three seasons at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival before moving to LA last month.
