Matt Long (Helix) is set to join NBC Sci-Fi show Manifest in a recurring role.
When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. But in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years – and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
Long will play Zeke, a mysterious new character whose arrival triggers a new relationship triangle and upends the series’ mythology.
Manifest is from creator/executive producer Jeff Rake and produced by Warner Bros. Television and Compari Entertainment.
