Casting News - December 6, 2022

Amazon's Cross; HBO's The Palace; and Hulu's We Were the Lucky Ones.

  • Alona Tal, Johnny Ray Gill and Eloise Mumford are set as series regulars on the upcoming drama starring Aldis Hodge. Tal previously starred for two seasons in Amazon's Hand of God and recurs on Paramount+'s SEAL Team. Gill recurred on SundanceTV's Rectify and WGN America's Underground. Mumford starred in the 50 Shades of Grey film franchise.
  • Tal will play Kayla Craig, a brilliant, determined and abrasive FBI agent with a sharp sense of humor who aims to recruit Cross (Hodge) into the bureau... and possibly her bed. Beneath Kayla's flirtation is deep esteem for Cross, along with a desire to be seen as his investigative equal.
  • Gill will play Bobby Trey, who is deadly, compact and cunning. A Louisiana native whose diesel engine is always running, Johnny is an ex-police officer who now works for Ed Ramsey (Ryan Eggold). He is motivated by the dollar and takes great pride in finishing everything he starts.
  • Mumford will play Shannon Witmer, who is smart, witty and resourceful, as well as a frustrated dreamer with artistic aspirations. When she meets the worldly Ed Ramsey, Shannon is intrigued by his charm and connections. But her interest leads to terror when she discovers Ramsey's true intentions.

  • Rahav will play Jakob, the youngest of his brothers and a photographer. Sweet and soulful, there is hardly anywhere he's rather be than beside his high school sweetheart, Bella, or peering down through the viewfinder of his camera.
  • Feiler will play Bella, who is deeply engrained in the fabric of the Kurc family and is Jakob's long-time love. Kind, clever and forever devoted to her own close-knit family, she has a journey of heartbreak, courage and unconditional love.
