Look for Phifer in the role of Ben Reynolds, an FBI agent that partners with Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) to track a serial rapist in the D.C. area.

Reynolds will serve as The Lightman Group's government liaison on the investigation. When he comes aboard - on May 6 - the character will have spent the previous six months pursuing the criminal.
