The casting continues Izzard's relationship with the network, where he most recently had a two-episode arc on Bryan Fuller's Hannibal and after he starred in the Pushing Daisies creator's ill-fated Munsters reboot.

The comedian's TV credits also include FX's The Riches, United States of Tara, The Good Wife and the features Valkyrie and Ocean's Thirteen. He's a two-time Emmy winner for his special Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill. He most recently was tapped to star in BBC's science drama Castles in the Sky.

Izzard is repped by APA and Conway van Gelder in the U.K.
