Jonathan Howard has booked a recurring role on TNT’s drama series The Last Ship. Created by Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane based on William Brinkley’s novel, The Last Ship chronicles the aftermath of a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Captain Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.
Howard will play James Fletcher, a British Royal Navy commander and MI-6 agent. A cross between James Bond and a Navy SEAL, Fletcher has been tasked to work with the crew of USS Nathan James to recover stolen items that are crucial to the survival of the planet. In so doing, he works closely with Sasha Cooper (Bridget Regan), who’s still with the ship, even in the absence of Capt. Chandler, who walked off Nathan James at the end of Season 3.
Howard’s credits include TV’s Guilt, Kingdom, Episodes, Dominion and Mr Selfridge, and he has appeared on the big screen in Thor: The Dark World and World War Z. He is repped by Gersh and Silver Lining Entertainment and by Gary O’Sullivan at Troika in the UK.
