Navid Negahban, best known for playing al-Qaeda mastermind Abu Nazir for two seasons on Showtime’s Homeland, is joining the upcoming Season 4 of ABC’s summer series Mistresses. Negahban will play the heavily recurring role of Jonathan Amadi, an uber-successful Persian businessman, in the soapy drama series from ABC Studios. He is a confident and charming man who likes to develop businesses, especially if there’s a rising star like Harry (Brett Tucker) attached. A man who has made a fortune in the hotel/restaurant business, Jonathan a genuine nice guy and makes a suave, well-prepared, not slimy pitch to help finance Harry’s business expansion.
Based on the UK series, Mistresses is executive-produced by Rina Mimoun, KJ Steinberg, Robert Sertner and Douglas Rae. Tia Mowry will also recur on the upcoming season.
Negahban also is recurring on ABC’s midseason drama The Catch, and his recent film credits include American Sniper, Brain on Fire and Sand Castle. He is repped by the House of Representatives, Impression Entertainment and United Agents.
