Robson Green, Martin Clunes, and Dougray Scott are to join the cast of Sky 1’s action series Strike Back.
The trio will join series regulars Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Rhona Mitra, Michelle Lukes and Liam Garrigan for the fourth series which sees Section 20 pursue a deadly terrorist network from Colombia to Beirut to Europe.
The 10-part series is currently in production in South Africa and Hungary and will air on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD this summer.
Green (Mount Pleasant, Soldier Soldier) will play Lt Colonel Philip Locke, a commanding officer in chief will join the Section 20 team.
Clunes (Doc Martin, Men Behaving Badly) plays Sebastian Gray, a former MI6 agent turned independent intelligence officer working in Beirut. Scott (Mission Impossible II, Desperate Housewives) will star as James Leatherby, a wealthy rogue operative and self-styled war junkie.
Huw-Kennair Jones, commissioning editor for Sky: “There really is nothing else like Strike Back on British TV, it’s a fantastic series full of explosive action that delivers a mini-movie each week.
“Working with HBO and Leftbank we’ve really upped the ante this year with a truly ambitious, global plot that I hope our customers will relish. I am thrilled Robson, Martin and Dougray have joined the cast for a very special fourth series.” Robson Green: “It is great to be working alongside ‘Section 20’ and being part of an ‘Elite Team’ for Sky. Strike Back is a quality drama with incredibly high production values.”
