Shooter - Cynthia Addai-Robinson Cast as the Female Lead In Recasting

USA Network's Shooter reboot is making a change.

Spartacus alum Cynthia Addai-Robinson has boarded the reboot of the feature film as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on Stephen Hunter's best-selling novel Point of Impact and the 2007 Paramount feature that starred Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Phillippe takes on the role of Bob Lee Swagger, an off-the-grid former Marine sniper who is coaxed into action to thwart the killing of the president. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he must call upon all the skills he acquired as a decorated Marine sharpshooter to avoid capture while hunting down and exposing the traitors who set him up.

Addai-Robinson will take over the role of FBI agent Nadine Memphis that was originally played by Emily Rios in the pilot. Nadine has a strong intuition and dogged determination which has made her a rising star in the bureau, but her headstrong personality has also landed her in trouble in the past. As the arresting officer of a would-be-assassin, she may have set her career back on the fast track, but her gut tells her there's more to this case. Not realizing the depth of the conspiracy, she unwittingly puts both her investigation and her life in jeopardy.
