Nick Wechsler Recon Pilot

Revenge's Nick Wechsler Joins Fox Terrorism Pilot Recon From TVD Team

Nick Wechsler‘s years of dealing with duplicitous Hamptonites will serve him well in his next endeavor.

The former Revenge star has been cast in the Fox drama pilot Recon, which follows a rookie FBI agent (Revolution‘s Tracy Spiridakos) who embeds herself in a suspected terrorist family, TVLine has learned. Wechsler will play Freddie, a “skillful and hardworking FBI agent who struggles with moral conflict” while helping Spiridakos’ character in her mission.

After wrapping Revenge in 2015, Wechsler appeared on several episodes of NBC’s short-lived thriller The Player. His small-screen resume also includes roles on RoswellWithout a Trace and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) wrote the pilot for Recon, and will executive-produce alongside Kevin Williamson (The Following) and Julie Plec (The Originals). Adam Davidson (Parenthood) is set to direct.
