It's gearing up to become a big year for young English actor Sam Underwood: set to appear in the third season of acclaimed Showtime drama Homeland, FOX has now also confirmed he will play a supporting role in its dark thriller series The Following.
FOX told TheWrap that the 26-year-old actor will portray a character named 'Luke,' described as a "very complicated and dangerous man." That definitely seems to put him in the follower camp, although producers are reluctant to reveal Luke's allegiances. With that description though, it appears he has a good chance of becoming part of Joe Carroll's () fanatical entourage. In any case, Mr. Underwood doesn't seem to have lost his appetite for serial killers...
Underwood's face has been gaining familiarity among US viewers as he is currently playing Dexter Morgan's () young protégé Zach Hamilton in the eighth and final season of Showtime's hit show Dexter.
Season 2 of The Following will premiere on an unspecified date in January 2014 on FOX.
