EXCLUSIVE: 'SYNTHESIS' ADDS FOUR TO CAST
After booking Evangeline Lilly, the producers of upcoming series 'Synthesis' have today announced the casting of four new recurring characters.
Ken Marino (Veronica Mars, Marry Me) will play Cliff Lowell, described as a "smarmy, opportunistic agent" who heads a task force similar to that of the main characters that are known as "the black sheep" of the department. Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Friday Night Lights, Underground) will feature as Kaya Montez, a "fiery and wicked, but brutal" agent, working under Lowell, known for her violent tendencies. Lowell and Kaya's fellow teammate, the "boneheaded but imposing" Tane Kravensale, will be portrayed by James Lafferty (One Tree Hill, Crisis).
Finally, actress Dianna Agron (Glee, Bare) has been locked to appear as Hartley, a friendly young police detective who becomes a voice of reason to Gordon but, like so many others, there is more to Hartley than meets the eye. Agron's part was previously confirmed, but had to be renegotiated after the role grew in importance.
Production on the second episode of 'Synthesis' is currently underway. Stay tuned for any further updates.
