Much like his character, John Nolan, Nathan Fillion is starting over in the role on ABC’s The Rookie.
But Fillion certainly isn't the only familiar face in this fictional version of the LAPD.
The Rookie showcases a talented, top-notch cast with many faces you might find familiar.
Can’t quite place them?
Not to worry as we’re here to jog your memory with all of the popular TV shows on which you’ve probably seen these accomplished artists before they began on what will be your new favorite show!
How do you know this man? Do you think you might have seen him on your TV screen? Then you're probably right.
Nathan Fillion as Officer John Nolan
If you don't know Nathan Fillion you may have been living under a rock. He starred as Richard Castle on Castle for eight seasons, but you also may have stumbled upon him on Desperate Housewives, Modern Family, or Community. How about Santa Clarita Diet where his decapitated head plays a major role? Captain Hammer? Captain Mal Reynolds? The evil Caleb from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Or perhaps all the way back to his days as Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live. The list goes on and on, so the odds are good that you’ve seen Fillion somewhere, in something before now.
Where have you seen Afton Williamson before The Rookie?
Afton Williamson as Officer Talia Bishop
I became a fan of Afton Williamson’s after her guest stint on Bull Season 2 Episode 15, but maybe you caught her as FBI Agent Katie Myers on Shades of Blue Season 3, as Alison Medding on Banshee, or Makena on Nashville. Even if you haven’t seen her before you’ll definitely want to check her out on The Rookie.
Do you know Eric Winter?
Eric Winter as Officer Tim Bradford
Eric Winter was most recently seen as Adrian Webb on Rosewood and Neil Oliver on Secrets and Lies, but my two favorite roles of Eric's were Craig O’Laughlin (Grace’s fiancee and Red John's minion) on The Mentalist and Rex Brady on Days of Our Lives.
