Mr. Robot Season 2: The Office Alum Craig Robinson Lands Recurring Role

After all those years at Dunder-Mifflin, Evil Corp should be a walk in the park for Craig Robinson.

The Office vet will dip his toes into dramatic waters with a recurring role on Mr. Robot‘s second season, TVLine has learned. He will play Ray, a neighborhood local who reaches out to Elliot in his time of need.

Robinson — whose recent TV credits include Brooklyn Nine-Nine and his short-lived NBC sitcom Mr. Robinson — joins a Season 2 cast that includes Extant‘s Grace Gummer (as an FBI agent investigating the Evil Corp hack), newcomer Chris Conroy (as a new man in Joanna Wellick’s life) and rapper Joey Bada$$ (as a friend of Elliot’s).

In addition, the acclaimed USA Network drama has promoted Stephanie Corneliussen and Michael Cristofer to series regular status for the 10-episode sophomore run, as Joanna and Evil Corp CEO Phillip Price, respectively.

    So maybe he is there as we all suspect that the other neighbor might very well be another Mr. Robot.

    It will be interesting to see him act in a drama. He’s good in comedy roles.

  4. Interesting choice in casting, but I have full confidence in Esmail’s counter intuitive decisions so far.
