All three men have worked with Taylor before, with Jordan playing Livestock Agent Steve Hendon on Yellowstone, in addition to appearing on Sheridan’s Paramount+ series Mayor of Kingstown.
Annable played Lee Dutton, the eldest Dutton brother, for a brief time on Yellowstone, though his character died early in the series. Garrett played Thomas on the Yellowstone prequel series 1883.
The trio will join join previously announced cast members Zoe Saldaña and Laysla De Oliveira as part of the official cast, and the show is based on a real-life CIA program which:

Saldaña plays Joe, the station chief of the Lioness program tasked with training, managing and leading her female undercover operatives.”
Jordan and Garrett will both play CIA Special Activities Division operatives Two Cups and Tucker, respectively, and Annable will play Neil, Joe’s husband and the father of their two daughters.
