'Revolution' Enlists 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' Alum (Exclusive)
NBC's Revolution is adding a new face to its ranks.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine alum Daniel Henney has boarded the network's sophomore drama for a three-episode arc, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Henney will first appear in the 13th episode of the series from executive producer Eric Kripke -- slated for January. The co-showrunner tells THR that Henney will play a "handsome, charming and incredibly intelligent" character named Peter Garner. Additional details about Henney's role are being kept close to the vest.
Henney boards the series days after the network announced that musician Bret Michaels will guest-star as a postapocalyptic version of himself on a 2014 episode of Revolution, during which he'll perform an acoustic version of Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
Henney, who most recently appeared on CBS' Hawaii Five-0, is repped by CAA and Medavoy Management. Revolution returns to NBC on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. in January.
