House of Cards star Michael Kelly is joining the cast of Amazon’s Jack Ryan series as “a smart, seasoned career field officer”.
Inspired by Tom Clancy’s novels but telling an all-new story, the series stars John Krasinski as Ryan and Wendell Pierce as James Greer. Kelly’s character Mike November will be seen working with both across the second series in which Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America.
Previously confirmed regular cast members include Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus), will play Harriet “Harry” Baumann, a highly capable, sharply intelligent and intoxicatingly charming BND agent (Germany’s Secret Intelligence) who crosses paths with Jack Ryan in South America, and John Hoogenakker (Colony, Empire) as Matice, a tough and salty American who works black ops for the CIA.
At first sceptical of what appears to be a desk-jockey, he quickly develops a new respect for Jack Ryan after seeing him handle himself in the field.
The first series of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is set to launch globally 31st August 2018 on Prime Video.
