Ordained revolves around Tom (Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox), the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer to prevent his politician sister from being assassinated.

Garcia will play Carlos, the law firm's staff investigator who is Tom's main ally and only friend at the office. He's an easygoing hotdog-eating guy unlike the rest of the suits at the office who uses unorthodox methods to get the job done and often does so with levity and humor.

The actor is repped by APA and Kritzer Levine and his recent credits also include Fox's Alcatraz and guest gigs on Californication, Fringe and How I Met Your Mother.
