Blair Underwood has joined the cast of Quantico as a new series regular in season 2, EW has learned.

Underwood will play Owen Hall, a charming, direct, and intelligent CIA officer that every fledgling operative wishes he or she could learn from. But is he running them, or using them for something else?

“Blair Underwood is the kind of actor you dream of writing for,” executive producer Josh Safran says. “Be it romantic comedy, dark drama, or high-octane thriller — there is nothing he can’t do. We look forward to creating a role that will showcase his huge range and boundless charisma.”

The casting keeps Underwood on ABC, where he recently starred on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. His credits also include The Good Wife, Dirty Sexy Money, and In Treatment. Underwood joins another previously cast newcomer, Russell Tovey (Looking). Details on his role here.

Quantico returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m ET on ABC.
