‘House of Cards’ Star Michael Kelly Joins ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’
Michael Kelly is the latest to join the “Jack Ryan” cast.
The “House of Cards” star will join John Krasinski, Noomi Rapace and John Hoogenakker in the Amazon drama based on Tom Clancy’s books. He will play Mike November, who is described as “a smart, seasoned career field officer in the CIA who works with both Jack Ryan and Jim Greer across the new season.”
Krasinski stars as the titular CIA officer, while Rapace will play the series regular role of Harriet “Harry” Baumann, a highly capable, sharply intelligent and intoxicatingly charming BND (Germany’s Secret Intelligence) agent, who crosses paths with Jack Ryan in South America. Hoogenakker will play Matice, a tough and salty American who works black ops for the CIA. At first skeptical of what appears to be a desk-jockey, he quickly develops a new respect for Jack Ryan after seeing him handle himself in the field.
