TOM CLANCY’S JACK RYAN: Wendell Pierce And Others Join Amazon Series

Wendell Pierce

Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi, and Ali Suliman Set To Appear In Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

Amazon has cast Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi, and Ali Suliman as characters in the streaming service’s original series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

The three actors will play alongside series leads John Krasinski and Abbie Cornish in the TV adaptation of the popular Tom Clancy action series:

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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
