A former member of the Doomsday Project think tank, he, too is summoned by Homeland Security when there is an imminent attack pending on U.S. soil." (Deadline.com)

Johnson then is set as Dominique Luca, "the team's expert driver and a skilled combat officer himself. He lives for the job and almost has too much fun behind the wheel. He'll follow orders, no questions asked - a necessary skill when part of such an efficient team." (Deadline.com)

UNTITLED MARVEL ACTION-ADVENTURE SERIES (FOX) - Natalie Alyn Lind is the latest to join the drama pilot as Lauren, "one of the children at the center of the story.
