Ryan Murphy’s ‘9-1-1’ Adds Four to Cast, Including Rockmond Dunbar, Aisha Hinds

Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Fox drama series “9-1-1” has added four new cast members.

Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Rockmond Dunbar have been cast in series regular roles.

Hinds recently was featured in the Fox event series “Shots Fired” and the cable film “All The Way,” opposite Bryan Cranston and Anthony Mackie. She also received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Harriet Tubman in the drama series “Underground.” Her additional television credits include a series regular role on the drama “Under the Dome,” as well as recurring roles on “Hawthorne,” “Weeds,” “Dollhouse” and “True Blood.”

Dunbar is best known to Fox audiences for his role as Benjamin “C-Note” Franklin on the network’s drama series “Prison Break,” as well as the recent event series of the same name. He also starred opposite Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan in the streaming drama series “The Path.” Dunbar’s additional television credits include “The Mentalist,” “Soul Food,” “Terriers” and “Sons of Anarchy.”

Stark most recently was seen in a starring role on the cable drama “Into The Badlands,” and in the feature film “Underworld: Blood Wars,” alongside Kate Beckinsale. He made his first British television appearance on the BAFTA Award-winning BBC series “Casualty,” and followed with roles on the Golden Globe- and Emmy Award-winning series “Luther,” opposite Idris Elba; as well as in “Dracula,” alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Choi’s role reunites him with Murphy. The two worked together on “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story,” in which Choi portrayed Judge Lance Ito. He also recently appeared in the blockbuster “Spiderman: Homecoming.” He next will appear in the feature films “Bright,” from director David Ayer; “Stephanie,” with Frank Grillo; Nash Edgerton’s “Gringo” and “Hotel Artemis,” alongside Jodie Foster and Sterling K. Brown; as well as the cable series “Counterpart,” with J.K. Simmons. Choi’s other credits include “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Suicide Squad” and “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

Hinds is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency and attorney Jeff Bernstein. Dunbar is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Mainstay Entertainment. Choi is repped by TalentWorks, Atlas Artists and attorney Myman Greenspan. Stark is repped by UTA, Alchemy Entertainment and Denton Brierley in the UK.

They join previously announced series stars Angela Bassett (who also executive produces), Connie Britton, and Peter Krause. “9-1-1” explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.

“9-1-1” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. The pilot is created, written and executive-produced by Murphy and Falchuk. Tim Minear, who co-created the series, is an executive producer and will serve as showrunner. Bradley Buecker is an executive producer and will direct the series premiere. Alexis Martin Woodall also executive produces along with Bassett.
