The French series The Bureau is getting its English-language reimagining, and its cast will be an embarrassment of riches. Richard Gere is the latest A-list star to join Michael Fassbender in the Paramount+ espionage thriller The Agency.

The Agency chronicles the journey of Martian, a covert CIA agent whose two lives start colliding after he leaves his undercover life behind, only to have his past lover reappear, putting his career, his real identity, and his mission in jeopardy after they’re thrown into a deadly game of international espionage.

Fassbender will lead the cast of this series as Martian, and Jeffrey Wright recently joined him as his mentor Henry. Gere was cast in the role of Bosko, the London Station Chief who spent eight years serving as an undercover agent.

Paramount Global co-CEO Chris McCarthy announced Gere’s casting and said they’re delighted to have him join this extraordinary ensemble.

“Richard Gere is in a class of his own, adored by generations of fans worldwide for his exceptional ability to infuse depth and authenticity into every role he plays,” said McCarthy in a statement.

Gere most recently starred in the romantic comedy Maybe I Do, and will next be seen in Paul Schrader’s drama Oh, Canada opposite Uma Thurman and Jacob Elordi.
