In this episode we preview NBC’s new actioner The Player. It stars Wesley Snipes (Blade films), Philip Winchester (Strike Back), Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall) and Damon Gupton (Empire).
The Player is an action-packed Las Vegas-set thriller that revolves around the pit boss and the dealer for a high-stakes game, where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on the ability of the player to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from taking place. Can the newest player take them down from the inside and get revenge for the death of his wife, or is it true that the house always wins.
The Player looks to have lots of big and fun action set pieces, but will there be more to it than that?
