Ringer‘s Mike Colter has a new alias.
The actor is joining Fox’s midseason serial killer thriller The Following in the recurring role of FBI bureaucrat Nick Donovan, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The series — from Vampire Diaries EP Kevin Williamson —revolves around a deranged serial killer by the name of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) who creates his own cult of murderers via the wonders of technology, and the retired FBI profiler Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) who is hunting him down.
Colter’s federal agent is brought in to supervise the Carroll case and, more importantly, Agent Hardy.
In addition to his one-season run on The CW’s Ringer, Colter’s TV credits include a recurring role as drug kingpin Lemond Bishop on CBS’ The Good Wife.
The Following debuts on Monday, Jan. 21 at 9/8c.
