ADDITIONAL CAST FOR SIX:
Deadline reports Revenge alum Barry Sloane landed the role of John “Bear” Graves, the recently appointed leader of Seal Team Six, a group of elite soldiers who take on the most high-risk military special ops missions in the world. This Brit will be making his way from across the pond later this month.
Also cast in SIX is Edwin Hodge. You might’ve seen him in Chicago Fire or perhaps The Purge. Hodge will take on the role of Robert Chase III, one of the seals-in-training being considered for Ortiz’s replacement. He completes challenges quickly but makes a few rookie mistakes.
