Rick Cosnett has landed his post-The Flash gig: Quantico.

Cosnett, whose character Eddie Thawne sacrificed himself in The Flash finale, has landed a recurring role on ABC’s new thriller, EW has learned.

Quantico stars Bollywood actress and soon-to-be American breakout Priyanka Chopra as one of a diverse group of recruits who have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it’s especially shocking that in the future, one of the recruits will turn out to be a sleeper terrorist responsible for the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.

Cosnett will play Elias Harper, an openly gay, incredibly funny former defense attorney who used his rhetoric and savvy against FBI cases. Recruited by Miranda (Aunjanue Ellis) as an analyst for his brilliant mind, Elias loves to be right, but also has a soft and kind-hearted side.

Cosnett’s casting follows Quantico also adding Ballers star Anabelle Acosta and Cougar Town alum Josh Hopkins.

Quantico will premiere Sunday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
