The Veronica Mars alum is boarding Season 4 of CBS’ military drama in the heavily recurring role of Lieutenant Commander Whitshaw, a charismatic officer who knows how to work the system to his advantage. Whitshaw has “a cunning ability to cover his own tracks, which makes him a formidable adversary,” says our sister site Deadline, which first reported on the casting.
TVLine hears that Whitshaw will figure into a storyline with, and serve as a bit of a foil for, DEVGRU Intelligence Officer Lisa Davis (played by Toni Trucks).
SEAL Team resumes its fourth season next Wednesday, April 7.
In addition to his aforementioned run as Veronica Mars‘ Logan Echolls, Dohring’s TV credits include iZombie, The Originals, Ringer and Moonlight, plus episodes of The Messengers, Bluff City Law and, most recently, All Rise.
