Hollywood, Hollywood News

Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Arrow) has been cast as the female lead opposite Ryan Phillippe in Shooter, USA Network’s upcoming drama series from Paramount TV and Universal Cable Prods. She replaces Emily Rios, who played the part in the pilot.

The thriller, based on Stephen Hunter’s novel Point Of Impact and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg, is written by John Hlavin and executive produced by Wahlberg. It stars Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger — the role played by Wahlberg in the movie — an expert marksman living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president.

Addai-Robinson will play FBI agent Nadine Memphis. Nadine has a strong intuition and dogged determination which has made her a rising star in the Bureau, but her headstrong personality has also landed her in trouble in the past. As the arresting officer of a would-be-assassin, she may have set her career back on the fast track, but her gut tells her there’s more to this case. Not realizing the depth of the conspiracy, she unwittingly puts both her investigation and her life in jeopardy.

Wahlberg and Hlavin executive produce with Stephen Levinson and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Phillippe serves as producer. Simon Cellan Jones directed the pilot.

Addai-Robinson has recurred as Amanda Waller on Arrow. She also recently co-starred in the History miniseries Texas Rising and did an arc on NBC’s Chicago Med.She is repped by Liebman Entertainment and Innovative Artists.
