Michael Kelly is the latest to join the “Jack Ryan” cast.

The “House of Cards” star will join John Krasinski, Noomi Rapace and John Hoogenakker in the Amazon drama based on Tom Clancy’s books. He will play Mike November, who is described as “a smart, seasoned career field officer in the CIA who works with both Jack Ryan and Jim Greer across the new season.”

Krasinski stars as the titular CIA officer, while Rapace will play the series regular role of Harriet “Harry” Baumann, a highly capable, sharply intelligent and intoxicatingly charming BND (Germany’s Secret Intelligence) agent, who crosses paths with Jack Ryan in South America. Hoogenakker will play Matice, a tough and salty American who works black ops for the CIA. At first skeptical of what appears to be a desk-jockey, he quickly develops a new respect for Jack Ryan after seeing him handle himself in the field.

The drama will also feature Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”) as James Greer and Abbie Cornish (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) as Cathy Mueller.

Co-creators and co-showrunners  Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) and Graham Roland (“Fringe,” “Prison Break”), executive produce with Krasinski and director Morten Tyldum. Executive producing with Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes are Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, who both worked with Krasinski on “A Quiet Place.” Daniel Sackheim, Mace Neufeld and Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross also executive produce the series, with Lindsey Springer and Allyson Seeger serving as a co-executive producers. Paramount Television and Skydance Television co-produce.

“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” premieres Aug. 31 on Amazon.
