Jack Ryan - Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi & Ali Suliman Join Amazon Series



Wendell Pierce, Dina Shihabi and up-and-comer Ali Suliman have been cast opposite John Krasinski and Abbie Cornish in Amazon’s straight-to-series drama Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, from the Lost duo of co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount TV.

Jack Ryan is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero. It centers on Jack Ryan (Krasinski), an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.

Pierce will play James Greer, Jack Ryan’s new boss and a highly successful case officer working in the CIA Directorate of Operations. This is one of the main characters in the series, though Pierce has been cast as a recurring as he is a series regular on the CBS comedy series The Odd Couple. It is not likely to be renewed but formally remains in contention.

Suliman will play Suleiman, a charismatic Islamic activist, whose life has taken a wrong turn.

Shihabi will play Hani, Suleiman’s wife and an independent Muslim woman who is willing to go to the ends of the earth to protect her children.
