Unforgettable alum Dylan Walsh is set for a recurring role opposite Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan on ABC’s dramedy Whiskey Cavalier, from Bill Lawrence, Dave Hemingson and Warner Bros. TV. Written by Hemingson, Whiskey Cavalier, from WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer Prods., follows the adventures of FBI agent Will Chase (codename: Whiskey Cavalier) — played by Foley — who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with quick, cunning and completely fearless CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: Fiery Tribune) — played by Cohan. Together, they lead an interagency team of spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics. Walsh will play Alex Ollerman, Will Chase’s boss at the FBI who has a secret agenda and a shocking endgame. Walsh just wrapped two episodes of Law & Order: SVU and his other previous credits include Nip/Tuck for FX, Unforgettable for CBS and CW’s Life Sentence. He’s repped by Gersh and manager Bob McGowan. Whiskey Cavalier premieres Wednesday, Feb.27 at 10 PM on ABC.
