Kenyan-American actor Edi Gathegi has joined the cast of the upcoming 5th season of FX's Justified, in what is said to be a major recurring role. 

Gathegi will play a character named Jean Baptiste, described as a former member of the Haitian secret police, with a cold, merciless attitude, who runs the Crowe family gator farm.

Justified isn't a series that I watch, so I can't offer any valuable commentary on it, or what Gathegi's Jean Baptiste addition might mean for the Crowe family. Those who are fans can chime in...

Gathegi has kept himself busy in TV land, appearing in 3 series this year - ABC's Family ToolsRed Widow, as well as the CW drama Beauty and the Beast.
