Deadline is reporting that Chris Ashworth has signed up for a recurring role in the upcoming fifth season of Amazon drama series Bosch.
The series is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels about LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch. The fourth season focused on an attorney being murdered on the eve of his civil rights trial against the LAPD and Bosch is assigned to lead a task force to solve the crime the city erupts in a riot. Bosch must pursue every lead, even if it turns the spotlight back on his own department. One murder intertwines with another, and Bosch must reconcile his past to find a justice that has long eluded him.
Chris Ashworth (whose credits include The Wire and Sneaky Pete) will be playing the role of Vardy, though no details of the character were included in the report. He’ll be joining recently cast Ryan Hurst and Chris Vance for the new season.
Bosch stars Titus Welliver, Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Madison Lintz and Lance Reddick.
