An actor who had a major role on Netflix's "House of Cards" is moving from one acclaimed drama series to another one. Deadline.com reports that Showtime's "Homeland" is adding Corey Stoll as a recurring character in the series' fourth season.

The Showtime drama is also adding Laila Robins of "Bored to Death" as a regular, the report notes.

"Robins will play Martha Boyd, the U.S. ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, who is professional and put together, with a ship-to-ship voice and personality to match," the story reports. "Stoll will play Sandy Bachman, the CIA Chief of Station in Pakistan and a rising star in the agency’s firmament. The series’ fourth season begins production later this month in Cape Town, South Africa for a premiere this fall."

Stoll played Rep. Peter Russo during the first season of "House of Cards," with his character going into a downward spiral and eventually being killed off.
