Rob Brown (Treme), Audrey Esparza (Public Morals) and Ukweli Roach (the UK’s Grantchester) have landed series regular roles in the NBC drama pilot Blindspot. It follows a woman (Jaimie Alexander) found in Times Square with her memory wiped and no clue as to what the extensive tattoos on her body mean and an FBI agent (Sullivan Stapleton) and his Critical Incident Response Group who investigate her. Brown and Esparza both play CIRG team members: He is the friendly but lethal Ramirez; she is the sharp Tasha Oslo. Roach will play Dr. Borden, an impressive scientist/psychiatrist brought in to help evaluate and treat Alexander’s character. Brown is repped by WME, Industry Entertainment and Morris Yorn; Esparza is with Innovative Artists and ATA Management; and Roach’s reps are United Agents in the UK and Circle of Confusion.
Graham Rogers (Revolution) has been cast as a series regular in ABC’s drama pilot Quantico. It revolves around a group of young FBI recruits, all with specific reasons for joining, who battle their way through training at the Quantico base in Virginia. One will launch a devastating terrorist attack on the U.S. Rogers will play Caleb, an athletic, somewhat cocky “golden boy” FBI trainee who’s having a hard time making the grade. Rogers is repped by APA and Stone Meyer.
