    KNEW they realized they had something in this actor when they brought him back for the second episode and he was in politics. So glad for him and that he’s being recognized for the talent that he is.

    Looking forward to seeing where they take his character and whether he’s another new love interest for Olivia!

    Correction: Frankie was the character he played on AMC. His parents were Jesse and Angie Hubbard.

    Anyway, congratulations to Cornelius on the new job.
