Sense 8 is available now on Netflix. Check out Adam throughout the season as Dr. Metzger.
Eight strangers around the globe find themselves connected — first by a violent vision, then by their shared ability to connect with one another’s thoughts and actions, and finally by the urgent need to find out what happened and why. Their need to know goes beyond simple curiosity — as they pursue answers, a mysterious organization hunts them down, intent on destroying them. The intense thriller is the first foray into television (or, more accurately, Netflix) for renowned filmmakers Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski (“The Matrix Reloaded”), who created the series with J. Michael Straczynski (“Thor”). The international cast includes veteran actors known to U.S. audiences, like Daryl Hannah (“Kill Bill”) and Naveen Andrews (“Lost”), and others well-known in their home countries, like German actor Max Riemelt and Doona Bae of South Korea. In keeping with the global premise of the series, shooting takes place all over the world, including London, Reykjavik, Nairobi and Mumbai.
Adam has been added to the cast of ABC’s Friday night comedy Cristela!
Adam plays Cristela’s colleague (and new man??) Six years into law school, Cristela is on the brink of landing her first big internship at a prestigious firm. The only thing standing between her and success seems to be her traditional Mexican-American family, who find her lofty career aspirations more ambitious than they think appropriate. As she finds herself with one foot in the old culture that she’s working to bring into the present at home and the other in the modern world that she wants to embrace in her professional career, Cristela finds the path to the American dream may not be simple, but it is full of laughter.

“The always excellent Shapiro demonstrates versatility and spark as the über-confident Feldman, whose fratboy charisma is tempered by a less attractive self-centeredness that Shapiro does not shy from revealing, making for yet another gem of a performance from the IAMA mainstay.”
“The Recommendation dazzles!”
