Daniel Lissing has booked the role of James King in Shawn Ryan’s drama pilot “Last Resort”. The ABC bound show, centers around the crew of a U.S. nuclear submarine, which, after disobeying an order to fire nuclear missiles, winds up being targets and manages to escape to a NATO outpost where they declare themselves to be the world’s smallest nuclear nation.
Lissing will command the role James King, a longtime Navy SEAL officer and expert killer in his 30s with an ex-wife, ex-children and ex-life and no ties back home.
Ryan will team up with Karl Gajdused and Martin Campbell to write and executive produce the Sony Pictures Television project. ABC gave pilot orders to the project in January.
Lissing co-starred on ‘Crownies’ as Conrad De Groot, an enthusiastic hunk in the Australian series. His agents are Armada Partners, Rise Media Group and Stone Meyer.
