  • Eggold will play Ed Ramsey, whose humble Midwest roots are the core of his irresistible charm, but he's got elbows sharp enough to carve out space in the elite social and political circles of D.C. and New York. He is smooth, well-connected and devious. He also can be physically imposing when he needs to be and has some very dark secrets. While initially a fan of Alex Cross (Hodge), Ramsey soon becomes a formidable adversary.
  • Mustafa will play John Sampson, also known as "Two-John" and "Man-Mountain." He is Alex's partner on the force and best friend of 30years. Full of swagger and larger than life, he believes that Cross is at a crisis point and needs to seek professional help.

  • He will play Andreas Windeler, a physically intimidating and intellectual businessman who serves as an emissary to an elusive criminal figure.

Rico recurred on AMC's Dark Winds and guest starred on Netflix's Mo.
  • Stormare will play Lucca, a weathered but wise sailor, tanned from decades on the ocean, his accent a soup of a thousand dialects.

  • Rico will play Issaxche, a Crow woman hoping to reunite with her family.
