Felix Solis is a man of mystery…
The 44-year-old Puerto Rican actor, film director and producer has been added to the cast of Drew, CBS’ drama pilot based on the Nancy Drew character from the classic mystery book series.
Written by Joan Rater and Tony Phelan and directed by James Strong, Drew is described as a contemporary take on the character from the books, with Nancy, now in her 30s, working as a detective for the NYPD, where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world.
Solis will play Lieutenant Ford, who moved to New York after his wife died under suspicious circumstances. He was a person of interest but never charged. He left all that behind and tries to forget his past by burying himself in work.
Solis, who recurred as Special Agent Jeffrey Clarke on The Following, will next be seen in ABC’s The Family.
