Revolution Adds Patrick Heusinger and Jessica Collins for Season 2

NBC's Revolution is expanding its ranks for season two.

The Royal Pains alum Patrick Heusinger has been tapped for a recurring guest star role on the returning drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The actor will play Adam, a 30-something, physically fit handsome/roguish man who's cool, has a good sense of humor and lives life to its fullest.

Also, Revolution is bringing the romance in Season 2, signing Jessica Collins for a four-episode arc as mysterious new addition Cynthia. Revolution' showrunner Eric Kripke has this to say about the character: "Cynthia is a beautiful young woman of deep faith, whose winning humor and blazing intelligence capture the heart of one of 'Revolution's' leading characters." While that could mean anyone from Miles (presumably still grieving Nora and wrestling with his feelings for Rachel) to Neville (still married) to Monroe (single, but psycho), we're wondering if maybe it's Aaron's turn for a little romantic distraction? Unless he's destined to reunite with his wife?

Heusinger most recently co-starred on Fox's failed drama pilot Boomerang as the son of Felicity Huffman. His credits also include Gossip Girl, Black Swan and NBC's busted pilot Beautiful People. Collins was a regular on AMC's "Rubicon" and ABC's "The Nine," which both lasted just a single season. She also had a supporting role in the Oscar nominated hit drama "Zero Dark Thirty."
