Australian actor Luke Mitchell is going from strength to strength over in Hollywood!
The star left the sandy shores of Summer Bay in 2013, and he's since scored major roles in NBC's Blindspot, Netflix's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and, most recently, he starred as Captain John "Abe" Abraham in the CBS drama series The Code.
Now, he's joined Paramount's feature adaptation of Tom Clancy's Without Remorse, which stars Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) in the role of John Clark. The film also features Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Rocketman) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim).
Without Remorse is the origin story of John Clark, a Navy SEAL-turned-CIA ops officer. Deadline reports Luke will play Rowdy, a member of Clark's team.
Clark first appeared in the 1987 Jack Ryan novel The Cardinal of the Kremlin, and at one point served as Ryan's bodyguard. Of course, Jack Ryan is already a well-known character, having been played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, Chris Pine and John Krasinski in different adaptations.
Without Remorse, which is slated for release in 2020, is Luke's first film since 2016, with the actor keeping busy with a myriad of television roles in recent years.
As Luke told TV WEEK earlier this year, "I've been very fortunate in my career and I've really been given a lot of really interesting projects, and I think each project before the previous project kind of set me up for the next project in some way.
"I just want to keep working and I've been very fortunate at the moment that things are flowing in a really nice direction in the States. We'll see how that goes and we'll see what's around the corner."
Luke's fellow Home and Away alums were quick to congratulate him on Instagram, when he shared the news with his followers.
"Massive congrats mate! That's bloody awesome," wrote Lincoln Lewis.
"Yes, bloody fantastic mate. Congratulations," Georgie Parker added.
Other stars including Samara Weaving, Lincoln Younes, Dan Ewing and Jessica McNamee also left supportive comments in honour of the new gig.
Congratulations to Luke! We can't wait to see the new flick.
