Michael Raymond-James has been cast in One Shot, the Paramount-Skydance Productions drama starring Tom Cruise.
The project, an adaptation of a 2005 Lee Child novel, centers on Jack Reacher (Cruise), an ex-Army cop who gets sucked into the mystery surrounding the arrest of a sniper accused of killing five people in a shooting.
Raymond-James, who played murderer René Lenier on the first season of HBO’s True Blood, has been cast in the role of Linsky, described as a lifelong criminal who is hired by villain The Zec (played by Werner Herzog) for a sensitive assignment.
Christopher McQuarrie will direct from a script he wrote.
One Shot, which features a cast that also includes Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo and Richard Jenkins, is set to begin filming in Pittsburgh this month.
Raymond-James starred on FX’s Terriers, which was critically acclaimed but cancelled after one season last year.
He is represented by Talent Works and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management.
