“Homeland” has recruited another new cast member for the upcoming sixth season.
“Nurse Jackie” alum Dominic Fumusa has joined the Showtime hit in a recurring role, Variety has learned exclusively.
Fumusa will play FBI Special Agent Ray Conlin. Other than his character name, details are scarce because his role is being kept tightly under wraps, according to an insider. The number of episodes in which he will appear has not been determined, as the season is still being written and is currently in production.
Fumusa joins other “Homeland” newbies for Season 6, including Elizabeth Marvel, who will play the president-elect, and “Prison Break” alum Robert Knepper, who will recur as General Jamie McClendon, the Department of Defense representative who is tasked with briefing president-elect Elizabeth Keane (Marvel) and her team.
“Homeland” brings Fumusa back into the Showtime fold, as he starred on “Nurse Jackie” for all seven seasons, playing Kevin Peyton. His other TV credits include guest spots on “Elementary,” “Blue Bloods” and recently “BrainDead” on CBS, and his film credits include Will Smith’s “Focus” and Michael Bay’s “13 Hours.” He is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment.
“Homeland” Season 6 premieres Sunday, Jan. 15 at 9 p.m.
