An actor from NBC’s Harry’s Law has found refuge on the network’s new fall action drama Revolution.

The J.J. Abrams-produced series has cast Derek Webster in a recurring role as Nicholas. He’s a strong rebel leader who faces off against Billy Burke’s character Miles, who’s on the run from a militia.

Webster has also appeared in FX’s Damages and the 1994 film version of Stargate. He joins another recent cast addition to the show, Lost‘s Elizabeth Mitchell. Revolution goes 15 years into the future of America after a blackout has wiped out all electronics. The series premieres Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
