Winston Duke joins CW series The Messengers
Winston Duke (Person Of Interest) has booked an arc on CW drama The Messengers, from writer/co-exec producer Eoghan O’Donnell and exec producer Basil Iwanyk. When a mysterious object crashes down to earth, some seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse. Duke, repped by SDB Partners, Judy Boals and Frontline Management, will play Zahir Zakaria, a fiery journalist from Mali who is determined to seek justice after an agricultural experiment by Plowman Family Farms goes wrong in a West African village. Duke will appear in the final three episodes with the potential to return next season.
