Casting News - June 12, 2024

ABC's Grey's Anatomy; Amazon's Criminal; and AppleTV+'s Hijack.

  • Jason George is officially returning as a series regular for the drama's upcoming 21st season. He joined the drama as a recurring guest star in its sixth season and was promoted to series regular starting with its twelfth season. He departed the cast after the fourteenth season to star in the firefighter spinoff Station 19. With that drama concluding last month after seven seasons, the door was open for George to return to the original series.
  • George plays Dr. Ben Warren, a former surgical resident-turned-firefighter and PRT physician. He is married to Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson).
  • Marvin Jones III, Michael Xavier and Dominic Burgess have booked recurring roles on the upcoming drama starring Charlie Hunnam. Jones starred for four seasons in The CW's Black Lightning and recurred on Paramount+'s Halo. Xavier currently recurs on The CW's Wild Cards, which has been renewed for a second season. Burgess currently recurs on AppleTV+'s Palm Royale, which has also been renewed for a second season.
  • Jones will play Chester, crime boss Sebastian Hyde's (John Hawkes) fearsome chief enforcer. Much like a seven-foot-tall man becoming a basketball player whether he likes it or not, Chester was drafted into the criminal life for his size and fearsomeness. He's not sadist, relying on his reputation and intelligence to get his way. He speaks softly most of the time, but the threat of sudden and deadly violence is always there.
  • Xavier will play Terry, another criminal, a good friend of Leo (Hunnam), a tough armed robber with a big heart, stepdad to Angie (Aliyah Camacho) and the love of Greta's (Adria Arjona) life.
  • Burgess will play Delron, a large man with a large appetite and large emotions. He is facing a trial in the next few days, and he's at the mercy of a few powers that be in the criminal organization he works for.
  • Toby Jones, Christiane Paul and Lisa Vicari have joined the cast of the drama's upcoming second season. Jones starred for three seasons in BBC Two's Detectorists and in the ITV limited series The Long Shadow. Paul starred in the first season of CBS' FBI: International and recurred on Starz's Counterpart. Vicari starred for three seasons in Netflix's Dark and in the Sky Atlantic limited series Django.
  • No details were immediately announced about the characters they will be playing.
