The Wisdom Of The Crowd’s Actor Richard T Jones is officially on board and is set to co-star opposite Nathan Fillion on ABC’s light drama series, The Rookie.
Written by former Castle executive producer/co-showrunner Alexi Hawley, The Rookie stars Fillion as John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the LAPD. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable, small-town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop. Now, surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous and unpredictable world of a “young” cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.
Jones will play Sergeant Wade-Grey, the station’s Watch Commander, who becomes a nemesis to Fillion’s forty-year-old rookie.
Jones currently can be seen in a recurring role in the Netflix’s Comedy Santa Clarita Diet and also recurred on Teachers and Criminal Minds.
