Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Spartacus, Arrow)  has been cast opposite Ryan Phillippe in the USA upcoming drama Shooter.

The series is based on Stephen Hunter’s best-selling novel Point of Impact and Addai-Robinson is set to star in the role of FBI agent Nadine Memphis, originally played by Emily Rios in the pilot.  The character 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.”

Ryan Phillippe has been cast as Bob Lee Swagger, an off-the-grid former Marine sniper who is coaxed into action to thwart the killing of the president. Ultimately he is double-crossed and framed for the attempt, and must call upon all the skills he acquired as a decorated Marine sharpshooter to avoid capture while hunting down and exposing those who set him up.

Omar Epps will also star in this series as Isaac Johnson, an ex-Marine and former commander officer.

Addai-Robinson got her first role on television in 2002 in an episode of The Education of Max Bickford.  In 2009, she received her first recurring role on the ABC drama, FlashForward , and the same year she appeared in Tina Mabry’s independent film Mississippi Damned.  Addai-Robinson starred in her first big budget feature film in 2011 when she was cast as Zoe Saldana’s mother in Colombiana.  She has starred in The Vampire Diaries, Texas Rising, and can be seen on the big screen in October starring in a feature film titled The Accountant alongside Ben Affleck and JK Simmons.
