‘Mr. Robot’ Promotes Two to Series Regulars, Adds Guest Stars for Season 2

Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen have been upped to series regulars on “Mr. Robot” for the upcoming second season, Variety has learned.

Cristofer (“Ray Donovan”) will reprise his role as Phillip Price, the CEO of Evil Corp. In the first season, he appeared in five episodes.

Corneliussen (“Legends of Tomorrow”) will return as Joanna Wellick, the wife of Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström) who is willing to do whatever it takes to put her family in a position of wealth and power. She appeared in seven episodes, during the show’s freshman run.

The show has also added new recurring guest stars with rapper Joey Bada$$ and actor Chris Conroy who will portray new characters. Joey Bada$$ will make his TV debut, playing Leon, a new close friend of Elliot (Rami Malek) from the neighborhood who often talks excessively to Elliot, advising him and philosophizing the meanings of life. Conroy will play Derek, a young, attractive new man in Joanna’s (Corneliussen) life.

Ben Rappaport and Tom Riis Farrell, who both appeared in the first season, will also return to Season 2 in their respective roles of Ollie and Bill.

Previously announced, Grace Gummer has also joined “Mr. Robot” as a series regular. She will play the new character Dominique “Dom” DiPierro, a young FBI field agent investigating the Evil Corp Hack masterminded by Elliot. She uses her instinctive skills to try and track down the fsociety members and find answers.
