Wayward Pines alum Tim Griffin is set for a recurring role opposite Hugh Laurie in the second season of Hulu’s drama series Chance. Griffin will play Frank Lambert, an influential and powerful San Francisco Assistant District Attorney. In its second season, Eldon Chance (Laurie), the paper pushing neuropsychiatrist has given way to a different kind of pusher– a man willing to push back at the broken system. When he is coerced into helping Detective Hynes (Brian Goodman) take down a serial killer, Chance finds himself ‘laying in the nest’ of the killer, in a dangerous game to prove the man guilty. Griffin played Adam Hassler on Fox’s Wayward Pines and a recurring arc opposite David Duchovny on NBC’s Aquarius. On the film side, Griffin appeared in the mega-hit Dwayne Johnson/Kevin Hart film Central Intelligence and in Joel Edgerton’s directorial debut The Gift. Griffin is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Untitled Entertainment.
