Revenge Alum Nick Wechsler Joins NBC’s The Player

The Player

Looks like Jack Porter is leaving the Hamptons and heading to…NBC? Revenge alum Nick Weshsler is changing networks and joining the cast of the Peacock’s upcoming fall drama The Player, which centers on an organization of incredibly wealthy individuals who gamble on whether a former military operative can stop unimaginable crimes. The series stars Wesley Snipes, Charity Wakefield, and Philip Winchester.

Per Deadline, Wechsler will play Nick, the boyfriend of Wakefield’s Cassandra. According to his character’s description, Wechsler’s Nick is a “good guy with morals caught in the web of century-old conspiracy.”

In addition to playing Jack in all four seasons of ABC’s Revenge, which just finished its run back in May, Wechsler’s other TV credits include It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaWithout a Trace, and Roswell.

The Player premieres on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 10 p.m. on NBC. Check out the network’s official description and trailer for the series below:

From the executive producers of The Blacklist comes the action-packed Las Vegas-set thriller The Player. The series co-stars Wesley Snipes as the pit boss and Charity Wakefield as the dealer for a high-stakes game, where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on the ability of former military operative turned security expert Philip Winchester (“Strike Back,” “Fringe”) to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out. Can he take them down from the inside and get revenge for the death of his wife, or is it true what they say: The house always wins.

John Rogers serves as writer and executive producer. John Davis, John Fox and director Bharat Nalluri also executive produce.
