We told you Jovan Adepo would be a huge star, and we're more than happy to say that we were right! After starring in Fences (alongside Denzel Washington and Viola Davis), The Leftovers (alongside Regina King) and Mother (alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem), Jovan hasn't slowed down.
He was cast as the lead in the upcoming period war drama, Overlord, which was written by Mark Smith (The Revenant) and Billy Ray (Captain Phillips); then he was announced as one of the stars of Ava Duvernay's upcoming Netflix series, Central Park Five.

Now, Deadline reports that Jovan has been cast as a series regular for the second season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, along with Jordi Molla (Genius) and Narcos stars, Cristina Umaña and Francisco Denis.
Created by Lost's Carlton Cuse and Graham Rolan, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a reinvention of the beloved Tom Clancy hero, up-and-coming CIA analyst, Jack Ryan (John Krasinski), as he is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.

In season two, which Jovan is joining, Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. Jovan will play Marcus, a former special crewman in the Navy now repairing boats. His life takes a turn when an old colleague offers him a critical position in a covert operation.
The show has been renewed for a second season even though the first season is yet to air. The first season will premiere on August 31, 2018.
Tech and politics. Is there even a difference between the two?
