Underwood will play Owen Hall, an intelligent and inspirational CIA officer everyone on the team admires and wishes they could learn from. We soon learn though, that he may be doing more than teaching his fellow agents, but using them for reasons to later be revealed.
"Blair Underwood is the kind of actor you dream of writing for. Be it romantic comedy, dark drama, or high-octane thriller — there is nothing he can't do," show creator Joshua Safran said. "We look forward to creating a role that will showcase his huge range and boundless charisma."
Last season ended with Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) joining the CIA, and since Hall is described as having "an instant presence" it seems safe to say he'l be using that charm to take charge — and perhaps more than that too.
