Geoffrey Blake is the latest actor to board Agent X, TNT’s upcoming drama pilot from Bourne Identity scribe William Blake Herron, Beacon Pictures and executive producer Armyan Bernstein.
Per Deadline, Blake has joined the cast of the project as Gray Cromwell, the Director of the CIA and a member of the Cabinet’s inner circle. This is the third TNT project for Blake, who also has roles on Franklin & Bash and the upcoming Steven Bochco drama Murder In The First. He joins a cast which is being led by Sharon Stone and also stars Jamey Sheridan (Homeland), John Shea (Mutant X), Jeff Hephner (Chicago Fire) and Mike Colter (The Good Wife).
Agent X follows America’s first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee (Stone), a woman with brains, beauty, and a cool composure that belies a restless mind. After the death of her husband, a Senate candidate, Natalie opted to run in his place. After a rapid rise as a political star, she now finds herself the newly elected Vice President of the United States. Initially apprehensive that her job will be ceremonial in nature, she soon learns that it comes with a Top Secret duty: protecting the Constitution in times of great crisis with the aid of her Chief Steward and a secret operative designated “Agent X” (Hephner).
