Mr. Robot Season 2: Craig Robinson Grabs Recurring Role

at . Comments

Craig Robinson is dropping comedy for some drama.

He'll be testing his dramatic chops on Mr. Robot Season 2, playing a fellow named Ray. He's a local who will reach out to Elliot in his time of need.

You probably know Robinson from his work on The Office, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, his short-lived series, Mr. Robinson, and one of the best movies ever, This Is the End. Yes, we know movies, too.

Robinson's role for Mr. Robot Season 2 will be recurring.

He's joining other newly added cast members including Grace Gummer, who will be an FBI agent investigating the Evil Corp hack, rapper Joey Bada$$ who will be playing Elliot's friend and Chris Conroy, who will be the new guy in Joanna's life.

Stephanie Corneliussen and Michael Cristofer have also been promoted to series regulars. Congrats!

The return date for the 10-episode second season of Mr. Robot is yet to be announced, but we hope it's sooner rather than later!

Mr. Robot Quotes

Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of... food! Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven't lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding Dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom you've lived in for far too long. So don't tell me about not being real. I'm no less real than the fucking beef patty in your Big Mac.

Mr. Robot

Hello, friend. Hello, friend? That's lame. Maybe I should give you a name, but that's a slippery slope. You're only in my head. We have to remember that. Shit.
