Christopher Backus has booked a recurring role on Amazon’s drama series Bosch. Backus will play Woody Woodrell, a former Army Special Forces soldier who now works for a private security firm. Based on Michael Connelly’s bestselling Harry Bosch novels, Bosch stars Titus Welliver as the idiosyncratic, tough, jazz-loving cop.

Backus most recently was seen in Showtime’s Roadies as the bassist for the Staton House Band. He also had a major arc on WGN’s Underground and guested on AMC’s Sons of Anarchy. He’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Untitled Entertainment
