NBC's Timeless Casts Harry Houdini With Mr. Robot's Michael Drayer

And for his next trick… Mr. Robot‘s Michael Drayer will play an up-and-coming Harry Houdini on NBC’s Timeless.

TVLine has learned that Drayer will guest-star as the fated-to-be-famous illusionist in Episode 10 of the freshman drama (airing Jan. 16, right after the holiday break), when the Time Team lands in Chicago 1893 during The World’s Fair. There, an amateur Houdini will employ his budding skills to help make one of the heroes “disappear” during a chase.

As previously reported, Joel Johnstone also guest-stars in the episode, as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes aka H.H. Holmes, one of America’s first documented serial killers.

In addition to his run as Mr. Robot‘s Dark Army liaison Cisco, Drayer’s previous TV credits also include Vinyl, Shades of Blue, Aquarius and The Sopranos.

Timeless continues its freshman run this Monday at 10/9, with a trip to the year 1754.

    I got a stand up desk with a motor that adjusts the height of the desktop AND I moved my desk so I could get natural sunlight. I never imagined how much changing both of these things would improve my mood. Alas
