Quantico: Looking's Russell Tovey Is the Show's Sexy, New Recruit

The role was created for him

Quantico is already beefing up its roster for Season 2.

British actor Russell Tovey, best known in the U.S. for his roles on HBO's critically beloved comedy Looking and the original Being Human, has joined the cast of the ABC thriller as a series regular, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tovey will take on the role of Harry Doyle, a character who's said to be an adult version of Oliver Twist's the Artful Dodger. He is described as being "just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it's over."

Based on that description, and as those who've seen Looking can attest, Tovey has been perfectly cast--which makes sense since, according to showrunner Josh Safran, the role was created specifically for the actor.

Tovey will next be seen in this summer's Looking movie, scheduled for July 23.

Quantico returns Sundays this fall on ABC.
