The ‘FBI’ TV Show: Who Are the Actors?
FBI is an intense new series that premiered on CBS last fall. The series comes to us from the executive producer of Law and Order, so you can guarantee there is high drama and high suspense every second of the show.
It takes a great cast to pull off such believable intensity and FBI has just that. The stars of the new show may not have the name recognition of some of the other big shows out right now, but chances are, you’ve seen them all before. Let’s take a closer look at the stars of FBI.
Missy Peregrym plays Special Agent Maggie Bell. The actress has added a few successful television shows to her resume since landing her first gig on the show Dark Angel. Peregrym has come a long way since playing “Hottie Blood.” After her guest appearance on Dark Angel, the Canadian-born actress had a nine-episode arc on Black Sash.
Peregrym went on to appear in Heroes in 2007, followed by Reaper and Cybergeddon. The actress landed her biggest role to date in 2010 playing Andy McNally in the cop drama, Rookie Blue.
Zeeko Zaki has a lot of experience playing the good guy. On FBI he is Special Agent Omar Adom. Zaki is best known for his roles in Six and 24: Legacy, both of which he appeared on in 2017. The actor has a relatively short career in Hollywood, landing his first role in 2012.
In 2012, Zaki played sergeant on the television series Homeland. That was followed by a guest stint on the Stephen King inspired show, Under the Dome. More recently, the Egyptian-born actor appeared in two episodes each of The Night Shift and NCIS: Los Angeles. Zakie and co-star Sela Ward are the only two main cast members that have never appeared on an episode of Law and Order.
Ebonee Noel plays Analyst Kristen Chazal. Noel is still a rookie when it comes to Hollywood standards. The actress first landed in Hollywood in 2013. Her first role on a major television series was a guest appearance on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
Noel had a few small roles before appearing in seven episodes of the TV series Still Star-Crossed in 2017. She followed that up with another seven-episode arc on the show Wrecked.
Jeremy Sisto has one of those faces — you know you’ve seen him somewhere, you just can’t place him. On FBI he plays Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine. Sisto first landed on the scene in 1991, but the role that would get him widespread attention came in 1995 when he appeared opposite Alicia Silverstone in the cult classic Clueless.
After Clueless, Sisto appeared in several movies throughout the late 90s and early 2000s. In 2001 he played Billy Chenowith in the HBO hit, Six Feet Under.
The actor found success again in 2007, appearing in 64 episodes of Law and Order. After leaving the crime drama in 2010, Sisto appeared in several TV shows, before finally landing a leading role on FBI.
Sela Ward is the veteran actress on FBI. Ward plays Special Agent in Charge Dana Mosier. Before joining the cast of FBI, the actress made a name for herself starring in a number of popular television shows.
The Mississippi native got her start appearing in the 1984 film, The Man Who Loved Women. After that, she joined the cast of Emerald Point N.A.S. Unfortunately, the show was canceled after only one season.
Since her first major role, the actress has been working consistently in Hollywood. In 1991, she starred in the television show Sisters. The actress played Teddy Reed Sorenson for all six seasons.
Her next big role came in 1999 starring opposite Billy Campbell in ABC’s Once and Again, a show that would make young stars Evan Rachel Wood and Shane West household names. Most recently, Ward has appeared on the Hugh Laurie medical drama House and CSI: NY.
FBI airs Tuesdays at 9 pm on CBS.
