Mr. Robot is adding another new face for season three.
Rizwan Manji (The Magicians) has signed on for a recurring role on the USA Network hacker drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
He will play Norm, Dominique DiPierro’s (Grace Gummer) new partner, who’s working with her to investigate the Five/Nine hack.
Manji joins fellow new Mr. Robot recruit Bobby Cannavale, who will be a series regular when the acclaimed series returns for season three in October.
Once again, creator Sam Esmail will also direct all the season's episodes. Esmail executive produces the Universal Cable Productions drama with Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.
