Russell Tovey is joining the cast of the ABC FBI thriller Quantico.
“Tovey will take on the series regular role of Harry Doyle,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The character is described as a mischievous gadabout. Part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger, the mysterious Harry can be anything to anybody — and is just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it’s over.”
Said showrunner Josh Safran: “Ever since being introduced to him in The History Boys 10 years ago, I’ve hoped to work with Russell. It’s been an honor for the writers and myself to be able to create this role specifically for him.”
Also, July 23, Tovey can be seen in the special finale of HBO’s Looking.
