Chris Ashworth cast on Bosch, Lyndon Smith lands on Are You Sleeping


Chris Ashworth and Lyndon Smith both land recurring roles on series next season of Bosch.

Chris Ashworth (The Wire) landed a recurring role for season five of Amazon’s Bosch. The series is based on the novels by Michael Connelly and was developed for Amazon by The Wire’s Eric Overmyer. It stars Titus Welliver as the title character, alongside Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Madison Lintz, and Lance Reddick. Ashworth will play a character named Vardy, but no details about the character have been revealed.

It was recently announced that Chris Vance had been cast as the leader of an opioid ring for season five, perhaps Ashworth has some involvement with that storyline – or, as the season follows the events of Connolly’s Two Kinds of Truth, perhaps he’s the criminal who accuses Bosch of framing him for murder. Ashworth recently played Miro on Amazon’s Sneaky Pete and guest starred on CBS’s Elementary, but viewers will likely know him best as “The Russian” from HBO’s The Wire.
