Amazon's upcoming Julia Roberts drama Homecoming has cast its leading man.

Two-time Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale has been tapped to star opposite Roberts in the half-hour drama from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail.

Based on the Gimlet Media fictional podcast of the same name, Homecoming is a psychological and political thriller that centers on a caseworker at a secret government facility (Roberts) and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life.

Cannavale will play Colin Belfast, the ambitious off-site supervisor of the Homecoming Initiative. Cannavale, who has a recurring role this season on USA Network's Mr. Robot, reunites the actor with Esmail, who will direct and exec produce Homecoming via his overall deal with Universal Cable Productions.
