Christian Slater Lands Title Role in USA Network’s Mr. Robot

USA Network‘s cyber-crime pilot Mr. Robot has cast Christian Slater in its titular role. He joins other stars already cast, including Rami Malek, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, and Martin Wallstr√∂m.

If you haven’t heard about Mr. Robot yet, it’s about Elliot, a young programmer with an anti-social disorder that can only connect with people by hacking them. Slater will play a mysterious anarchist, Mr. Robot, who recruits Elliot into an Anonymous-like hacker group that aims to bring down corporate America.

Slater also has a recurring role in the upcoming sixth season of FX’s Archer.

As a long-time Christian Slater fan, I’m thrilled by this news. Here’s hoping if this series is picked up for a full season, it breaks his TV series cancellation record.
