'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' Season 2: 'Caught' star Allan Hawco to play Coyote as Amazon Prime Video adds him to cast
Amazon Prime Video announced Allan Hawco has been roped in to play Coyote in its upcoming political crime-thriller, 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' Season 2. The 42-year old is best known for his starring role in 'The Republic of Doyle' (2010-14) and more recently the 2018 mini-series 'Caught.' At the moment, there is no further information about his character. However, it may be possible that the upcoming installment may have added a few new characters with new identities.
With the plotline reportedly borrowed from Clancy's '89 bestseller, 'Clear and Present Danger', it is safe to speculate that Hawco's Coyote maybe one of the characters who Ryan (John Krasinski) would encounter in Venezuela at some point. As per IMDb, the actor will make an appearance from episode 3. Interestingly, there is no character who goes by the name in the '94 Harrison Ford starrer 'Clear and Present Danger' where Ford plays the titular character.
However, one working theory could be decoding his name. Coyote could be a codename. The word coyotes originated in the early 19th century, where it was used to describe a person that employed Mexican immigrants for labor in the United States. It is also a colloquial Mexican–Spanish term referring to the practice of people smuggling across the U.S.–Mexico border. Considering, the new series has to do with illegal arms shipment, it is possible Hawco may have a role similar to that of Carlos Larson from the novel.
Larson plays a CIA operative in Colombia, undercover as a general-aviation pilot and flight instructor who often does business with the cartel, and perhaps his CIA codename would be Coyote. At the moment, this theory is pure guesswork, and guess we'll know more about Hawco's character as we near the release date.
'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' Season2 will debut November 1 on Amazon Prime Video.
