Chris Noth Joins Season 3 of FX’s ‘Tyrant’

Chris Noth has been cast in the third season of “Tyrant,” Variety has learned.

The “Sex and the City” alum has joined the FX drama in the role of U.S. General William Cogswell, who was summarily transferred out of Abbudin and returns to that country when Barry Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) assumes the provisional presidency. Although he initially offers American support, General Cogswell will rise to power as his romantic history with Leila (Moran Atias) reignites, and as his apparent — and hidden — idiosyncrasies are revealed.

Noth currently stars on “The Good Wife,” which is ending after its current season. With CBS’ Julianna Margulies drama coming to an end, Noth’s schedule opened up, and he landed in the “Tyrant” series regular role in no time. His previous credits, include playing Mr. Big on HBO’s “Sex and the City” and Det. Mike Logan on “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” on which he starred for over 100 episodes.

“Tyrant” was renewed for its third season back in October 2015. The Middle East-set drama will return with 10 episodes this year, though no premiere date has been set. Gideon Raff created the series and exec produces with “Homeland’s” Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser and Avi Nir. Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions produce.

Noth is repped by Gersh and Sanders Armstrong Caserta.
