McDorman will play Brian Sinclair, a man who takes the experimental drug NZT, which allows him to access 100 percent of his mental capability. He then is coerced into using his enhanced abilities to solve crimes with the FBI.

Coincidentally, McDorman starred opposite Cooper in the recent film American Sniper. His TV resumé includes roles on Greek, Shameless and The Newsroom. He also played Peter in ABC’s ill-fated rom-com Manhattan Love Story.
