2 new roles have been filled for Mr. Robot‘s upcoming second season. Rapper Joey Bada$$ has been cast as Leon, ” a new close friend of Elliot’s from the neighborhood. He often talks excessively to Elliot, advising him and philosophizing the meanings of life.” Chris Conroy has been cast as Derek, “the young, attractive new man in Joanna’s Life. Their intimate moments leave Derek infatuated with the Danish beauty.” Season 1 performers Michael Cristofer (CEO of Evil Corp Phillip Price) and Stephanie Corneliussen (Joanna Wellick) have had their roles upgraded to series regulars.
Mr. Robot tells the story of Elliot (The Pacific‘s Rami Malek), a brilliant hacker who works as a security expert by day, and digital vigilante by night. Elliot becomes involved with a collective of hackers known as F Society, who have plans to wipe out a major corporations debt records. Last year I wrote an article evangelizing the series, and my opinion stands the same. Season 2 cannot come soon enough.
