Nick Wechsler is gonna Play(er), Player(er), Player(er).

Shaking off the role of Jack Porter on Revenge, the actor has been cast on NBC's The Player, according to Deadline, which reports Wechsler will come on board the new drama as a character named Jack.

He’s the good, “moral” boyfriend of Cassandra (Charity Wakefield), someone who gets caught up in a century-old conspiracy.

The Player stars Wesley Snipes as a pit boss and Wakefield as the dealer for an unusual, high-stakes game where an organization of rich individuals wager on the ability of former military operative-turned-security expert to prevent some of the biggest crimes possible from playing out.

It premieres on Thursday, September 24 at 10/9c.

Earlier this month, meanwhile, we also reported that Wechsler's former Revenge co-star, Gabriel Mann, will guest star on another NBC drama, The Mysteries of Laura.
