Rabbit Hole, the espionage drama from Paramount+, is expanding its cast.
Rob Yang (Succession) has joined the cast of the Kiefer Sutherland-led drama. He’ll be a series regular, portraying a government official who becomes entangled in a possibly world-changing scheme.
Rabbit Hole, which has been ordered to series by CBS Studios and written and directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, will premiere in May 2021. (This Is Us, WeCrashed). Sutherland (who also serves as an executive producer) plays John Weir, a private espionage operator fighting for the survival of democracy in a society beset by misinformation, behavioral manipulation, the surveillance state, and the interests that wield these unprecedented powers.
Yang will play Edward Homm, a mild-mannered, stiff, and quiet US Treasury official who becomes involved in an espionage plot.
With Sutherland (24, Showtime’s upcoming The First Lady), Charlie Gogolak (The Sinner), and Suzan Bymel, Requa and Ficarra are executives producing Rabbit Hole (Designated Survivor). Sutherland and David Nevins, chairman and CEO of Paramount Premium Group and chief creative officer of Paramount+ scripted programs, reunite for the series. Nevins previously worked at Fox and Imagine Television, where he assisted in the development and direction of 24.
Yang was a regular on Showtime’s American Rust last year and played in the first two seasons of HBO’s Succession in 2018 and 2019. The Resident at Fox, Netflix’s Living With Yourself, and FX’s The Americans are among his other credits. Yorn Levine and APA represent him.
