Josh Hopkins Joins ABC's Quantico, Replacing Dougray Scott

Cougar Town‘s Josh Hopkins is relocating to Quantico.

The actor is joining ABC’s new fall drama in the series-regular role of FBI Special Agent Liam O’Connor, a staff counselor at Quantico who suffers bouts of depression stemming from a mistake in his past.

Probably not helping his mental state is that fact that his former partner Miranda (played by Aunjanue Ellis) is now his boss.

The role was portrayed in the pilot by Dougray Scott (Hemlock Grove).

Quantico premieres Sunday, Sept. 27 at 10/9c.

    Really miss Cougar Town but it’s great to see Josh Hopkins replacing Dougray Scott’s role on Quantico.

    Why is Dougray Scott being replaced? He would have been my reason for tuning in.

    • Daisy says:

      Agreed. I mean, I like Josh Hopkins and all but Dougray was the initial draw for me.

    • Patrick says:

      Production bait and switch. Hire, and pay, a big name/expensive actor in a supporting role to shoot the pilot. After the show gets picked up, replace the big ticket item (here, Scott) with a recognizable, talented, but much cheaper, option. It happens a lot.

    I’ve loved him since he was Charlie Babcock! Guess I’ll have to watch this show now, so happy it doesn’t conflict with anything else on my DVR.
