Stand-up-comedian and actor Vir Das is all set to make his debut as a FBI agent in American television series Whiskey Cavalier.
Owing to his finest stand-ups across the world, Das has carved a name for himself in the west and is back with another treat for his fans as he is all set to follow in Priyanka Chopra’s (Quantico) footsteps by essaying the role of a FBI agent. He will be starring in ABC’s Whiskey Cavalier.
The Go Goa Gone actor will be playing one of the main leads in the show, Jai Dutta. If rumours are to go by, Das sneakily shot the pilot in early 2018 in Prague for three straight weeks.
On his latest venture, Das said, “I had such a good time shooting the pilot. It’s an exciting time to bring Indian voices to American television. This is a comedy team and a cast that is the right mix of laughs and action. I’m looking forward to saving the world with some hilarious people. It was something that the universe sends my way while I was on tour in the US. I ended up meeting Bill and the team and we found this character together.”
Whiskey Cavalier is an upcoming hour long high octane dramedy following the tough but tender FBI super agent, Will Chase (essayed by Scott Foley), who has the code name of ‘Whiskey Cavalier’.
Acknowledged as one of the most talented artistes of his generation, Das has indeed landed a big role with the new show, which will surely be a turning point in his career.
Whiskey Cavalier is set to premiere during 2018-19 television season on ABC.
