jay hernandez last resort 'Last Resort' casts actor Jay Hernandez“Last Resort” has cast actor Jay Hernandez (“The Rookie,” “World Trade Center”) in an eight-episode arc on ABC’s new thriller, reports EW.

Hernandez isn’t expected to share screentime with Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman, whose renegade nuclear submarine crew has set up camp at a tropical island. Instead, his role as the charismatic Paul Wells will be “testing the loyalty” of Speedman’s estranged wife (Jessy Schram).

ABC previously announced the casting of another homefront character: As the Secretary of Defense, “The Shield” vet Jay Karnes is reuniting with “Last Resort” co-creator Shawn Ryan.

“Last Resort” debuts Thursday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
