Quantico Eliza Coupe Cast Season 1

Quantico Recruits Happy Endings Alum Eliza Coupe for 'Hardcore' Arc

Quantico‘s NATs soon will have another possible bomber top-notch agent in their midst: Happy Endings alum Eliza Coupe is joining the ABC drama’s cast, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Coupe’s Hannah Wyland graduated from the FBI academy seven years ago. Her ambition, combined with her looks and her confidence, has rocketed her past her competition in the intervening years. And then there’s this juicy bit, direct from the official character description: “She can turn on the soap, sex and romance, but at heart she’s a hardcore career agent with countless notches in her belt”?

Hannah first will show up in Episode 10, likely to air in early 2016; we hear the role comes with a series-regular option.

The part is a surprising turn for Coupe, who has built a career on comedic roles. In addition to Happy Endings, her TV resumé includes stints on ScrubsCommunity and Benched. She recently appeared on The Mindy Project and Casual.

Coupe joins other Season 1 cast additions Jacob Artist, Anne Heche and Marcia Cross.

    Just as I was about to dump this terrible show they add someone that can actually act AND is hot! Make her the main character and dump that Chopra chick and I’ll watch every week!

    Quantico is still a good show if a lot of people can’t stand it. Eliza Coupe’s new role will suit her just fine even though Happy Endings was one of the best TV comedies I’ve ever seen.

    I hope they also bring back Rick Cosnett as a series regular.

    • Daniel says:

      They wont. Elias has left the building.

      • Jbj says:

        Maybe, maybe not. Elias has been rejected as an FBI analyst, but the actor is contracted for six or seven more episodes. So, it’s fair to say that Elias will return in some capacity. My guess is as a defense lawyer, since he’s mentioned it enough.

  5. David Perkins says:

    Yawn. More lather for the soap needy.

  6. Wordsmith says:

    No mention of the fact that her character on Community was also a hardcore government agent?

    I love this casting soooo much, my fav new show this season with one of my fav comedy actresses from the amazing Happy Endings. I can’t wait and I’m sure she’ll kill it in this role I’m sure. Casting is on point with her and Marcia cross
