Wayward Pines alum Tom Stevens is set for a recurring role in Syfy’s Deadly Class, based on the critically acclaimed Image Comics graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, from The Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Sony Pictures TV and Universal Cable Productions. Adapted for television by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott, Deadly Class is described as a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst. Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, it follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Stevens will play Chester “F*ckface” Wilson, a resident of the same boys’ home Marcus lived in before taking to the streets of San Francisco. An incident at the boys’ home leaves Chester thirsty for revenge against Marcus, his new archenemy. Built like a linebacker with a distinct face, he is vile and volatile, and ready to take down anyone in his path to vengeance. Stevens is known for his role as Jason Higgins on Wayward Pines. His other credits include Beyond, Valley of the Boom, Falling Skies, Supernatural and Motive. He’s repped by Robert Stein Management and Play Management.
