Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi, and Ali Suliman Set To Appear In Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Jack Ryan is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero. It centers on Jack Ryan (Krasinski), an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.
Pierce will play James Greer, Ryan’s new boss and a highly successful case officer working in the CIA Directorate of Operations. This is one of the main characters in the series, though Pierce has been cast as a recurring as he is a series regular on the CBS comedy series The Odd Couple. He is available because the sitcom is producing only 13 episodes in Season 3. It is not likely to be renewed but formally remains in contention. The in-demand actor, an alum of The Wire and Treme, also recurs on USA’s Suits and Showtime’s Ray Donovan and recently starred in the HBO film Confirmation and in the Fox musical Grease Live! He is repped by Paradigm and Essential.
