Leverage Reboot Show Image: First Look At James Marsters & Christian Kane

The show¬†has¬†been filming in New Orleans since last August. Along with Marsters, the reboot has added Noah Wyle (Falling Skies) and¬†up-and-comer Breanna Casey (The CW’s Charmed)¬†to the cast. As described by John Rogers, co-creator of the original Leverage,¬†Wyle will play a¬†“conflicted” corporate lawyer who¬†finds his conscience after realizing he’s working for the wrong team. Wyle will also direct two episodes of the 13-episode season. Casey has been cast as Hardison’s foster sister, who, like Hardison,¬†has a track record of using her¬†computer¬†prowess¬†for sub-legal purposes. Executive producer Dean Devlin has also joined the project, which he says is a¬†“re-imagining of the original premise.”

Marsters unfortunately will only be appearing in a guest role in Leverage: Redemption, but¬†it’s exciting to see the fan-favorite appearing on screen nonetheless. Despite Eliot’s amused expression, the first-look¬†photos¬†are¬†of¬†a scene in which¬†he’s working¬†to stop Marsters’ character Carl from¬†his devious plot.¬†Of course, whatever Eliot’s up to in the episode¬†is¬†probably not entirely legal either, which is why Carl’s inclusion as a kind of moral foil for the main team¬†is an interesting concept. Both steal from the rich, who are themselves stealing from the poor, but¬†Carl’s self-serving intentions¬†may¬†clarify an ethical boundary¬†for Eliot¬†that distinguishes the characters’ relatively similar operations.
