Edwin Hodge (Chicago Fire, The Purge) has joined the ensemble cast of History’s eight-episode military action drama series Six, from A+E Studios and The Weinstein Company.

Written by William Broyles (Jarhead) and David Broyles, a military Special Operations veteran, and inspired by current events, Six follows a brotherhood of modern American warriors, Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.

Hodge will play Robert Chase III, one of the seals-in-training being considered for Ortiz’s replacement. He completes challenges quickly but makes a few rookie mistakes. He joins previously cast Barry Sloane, Dominic Adams and Juan Pablo Raba.

Hodge, repped by Pakula/King & Associates and The Priluck Co., will next be seen in a recurring role on Season 2 of ABC’s Secrets And Lies and in the upcoming The Purge 3.
