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.
