Peter Facinelli, American Odyssey

Virginia Sherwood/NBC

Peter Facinelli is certainly having a good few weeks. The actor recently announced his engagement to Thor's Jamie Alexander and his NBC drama, American Odyssey, is fast approaching. Factor Nurse Jackie in and it's good to be Peter Facinelli!

American Odyssey tells the interlocking stories of an American Special Forces soldier, a disillusioned corporate lawyer and a political activist. Facinelli plays the lawyer, Peter Decker, who is also a former US Attorney. Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Pushing Daisies star Anna Friel) battles jihadists in North Africa and stumbles upon information that links an American company to the terrorists. Facinelli's character finds himself in a merger with a company that funded jihadists. See, it's all connected!

Get a sneak peek at Facinelli's character in action above.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Omar Ghazaoui, Elena Kampouris, Daniella Pineda, Jake Robinson and Treat Williams also star.

The drama and intrigue continues when American Odyssey premieres on Sunday, April 5, at 10 p.m. on NBC.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
