Desmond Harrington has been cast on Limitless, scheduled to appear in the fifth episode of the exciting new CBS drama.
An alumni of Dexter, Gossip Girl, and The Astronaut Wives Club, Harrington will play Special Agent Casey Rooks. The quiet but formidable character brings a background in martial arts, combat sports, and meditation to an elite FBI SWAT unit.
The series, a sequel to the smash hit movie of the same name, stars Jake McDorman as Brian Finch, an everyman who suddenly finds his abilities magnified thanks to a mysterious drug called NZT. As Brian assists the FBI on their most difficult cases, Casey will be assigned to give him basic training. While impressed by Brian’s quick learning curve, Casey will watch him like a hawk in hopes of uncovering his secret. Perhaps it’s jealousy, perhaps it’s another agenda.
Of course, Casey’s got his own secrets—like a love affair with Brian’s boss, Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter). Carpenter is a fellow Dexter alum and has also appeared on CBS’ The Good Wife.
Limitless debuts Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
