MR ROBOT – BD Wong Promoted To Series Regular


Mr Robot has revealed a release date for the highly anticipated Season 3 of the USA network show.

The thriller also revealed new casting news with BD Wong who previously recurred now being promoted to a series regular. Wong played transgender hacker Whiterose (a.k.a Chinese Minister of State Security Zheng), part of the Dark Army hacker group. “Whiterose has so much presence and there is so much intelligence and even amusement behind her eyes. She’s really one of the best things about this show,”

 Joining in season three is Bobby Cannavale (Vinyl) who will play Irving, a laconic, no-nonsense used car salesman.

Jeff Wachtel, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s chief content officer had this to say:

“Season 3 of ‘Mr. Robot’ will engage viewers in a whole new way, with Sam and team continuing to find ways to surprise, challenge and delight the audience. And adding Bobby Cannavale and BD Wong to our cast makes one of the tightest acting ensembles even stronger,”

The series stars Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Rami Malek, Golden Globe Award winner Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer, Bobby Cannavale, BD Wong and Stephanie Corneliussen.
