Taylor Kitsch Joins Chris Pratt in Amazon's 'Terminal List'

Kitsch will play Ben Edwards, Reece's best friend and a former SEAL who now works for the CIA. He uses his access to intelligence and operator's skillset to help Reece seek vengeance.
Kitsch's recent credits also include Canal+ drama series Shadowplay (alongside Michael C. Hall and Logan Marshall-Green), Paramount Network's Waco and features Only the Brave and
. He's repped by Untitled Entertainment and Range Media Partners.
Executive producers for The Terminal List are Pratt and Jon Schumacher through Indivisible Productions; Antoine Fuqua (who's also directing) through Fuqua Films, writer Daniel Shattuck and Carr. David DiGilio will serve as showrunner as well as writing and exec producing.
MRC Television is a division of MRC, which is a co-owner of The Hollywood Reporter through a joint venture with Penske Media titled P-MRC.
