Actor and Comedian Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine) has joined the cast of Mr. Robot‘s upcoming, and highly anticipated, sophmore season. Robinson will portray, Ray, “a neighborhood local who reaches out to Elliot in his time of need.”
Craig Robinson is the 3rd announced casting for Mr. Robot‘s 2nd season after the recent casting of Rapper Joey Bada$$ (who will be playing Leon, a close friend to Elliot) and Actor Chris Conroy (who was cast as Derek, the new man in Joanna’s life).
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.
