Y’lan Noel to Star in FX Pilot ‘The Spook Who Sat By the Door’

Y’lan Noel has been cast as Dan Freeman, the protagonist in the FX adaptation of Sam Greenlee’s spy novel, “The Spook Who Sat By the Door,” which is being executive produced by Lee Daniels.

In “Spook,” Freeman has “just been hired as the only Black operative in the CIA.” He described as “a patriot, a Vietnam vet, and secretly, a Black Revolutionary.”

Noel, known for playing Daniel in Issa Rae’s “Insecure” on HBO, was most recently in the Stella Maghie romantic drama “The Photograph” from Universal Pictures last year, and can be seen in the Mo McRae-directed “A Lot of Nothing” opposite Cleopatra Coleman and Lex Scott Davis. Noel was previously in Meghie’s indie comedy “The Weekend” alongside Sasheer Zamata, Tone Bell and DeWanda Wise, and starred in Gerard McMurray’s “The First Purge.”
