Revenge alum Nick Wechsler has been cast as the male lead opposite Tracy Spiridakos in Recon, Fox’s drama pilot executive produced by The Vampire Diaries’ co-developers/exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec.

Recon centers on Alexa (Spiridakos), a young, driven FBI analyst tasked with embedding herself in a suspected terrorist family. Wechsler will play Freddie, a skillful and hardworking FBI agent who struggles with moral conflict while at the center of a key mission: He joins previously cast Alexander Siddig and Sarita Choudhury. Warner Bros. TV is the studio.

Wechsler, who played Jack Porter on ABC’s Revenge, recently recurred on NBC’s The Player. He’s repped Innovative Artists and manager Gilbertson Entertainment.
