Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Quantico and Supergirl actor David Lim has been hired as a series regular on CBS' new drama, S.W.A.T.
Lim will play Victor Tan, a new S.W.A.T. officer, who "has a nose for action and a willingness to place a bet on anything," the network said in press notes.
"He uses his confidential informants in the community to help Hondo and the rest of their team capture the city's toughest criminals."
Set to premiere on Nov. 2, the show will star Shemar Moore, Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Lina Esco, Kenneth Johnson, Peter Onorati and Jay Harrington.
"A couple weeks before shooting began, our pilot director Justin Lin felt the S.W.A.T. team needed one more member to feel complete. Justin, Aaron Rahsaan Thomas and I remembered David Lim, who had really impressed us in an audition for a different role. We quickly created the role of Victor Tan and were lucky enough to cast David," said S.W.A.T. executive producer Shawn Ryan in a statement Thursday. "Seeing his great work in the pilot, as well as in subsequent early episodes, convinced us to promote him to series regular, and we are thrilled to have him join our official S.W.A.T. team, both on camera and off."
