ABC Pilot Scoop: Revenge Alum Gets Reckless

Ashton Holmes on ABC's RecklessOnetime Revenge troublemaker Ashton Holmes now is feeling Reckless, as a cast member of an ABC drama pilot.

Reckless follows David, a resourceful problem solver doing all he can to free his wife, who has been unjustly imprisoned overseas during a political uprising. When stymied by an overly diplomatic U.S. government, he’s forced to consider less-than-legal options to secure her release.

Holmes will play Wyatt, a cocky, opportunist acquaintance of David’s from college who represents a private security contractor. Wyatt eventually puts David into contact with Roland Shaw, a dangerous mercenary.
