The Australian actor will play music producer Chris Patterson in the second season of the award-winning comedy series.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 13, 2018 / — Acclaimed Australian actor Alistair Cooke has signed on to star in the second season of the award-winning Funny or Die series "Unverified". The series is expected to film in Nashville and New York.

"Unverified" is about an entitled-but-clueless British screenwriter coming to Los Angeles in hopes of landing a television deal. The 26-episode second season will have Cooke portray the series-regular role of Chris Patterson, an aspiring music producer. The Perth-native will also be joining fellow Australian Cooper van Grootel (ABC Australia’s "Mystery Road") who recently shared the screen with Golden-Globe nominee Frances O’Connor in Owen Trevor’s feature "Go Karts".

Cooke is known for his award-winning leading performance in the hugely popular series, "The Horizon". "The Horizon" is the most watched LGBTQI+ web series in the world. Cooke also appeared in the SBS mystery thriller "Deep Water" opposite Noah Taylor ("Preacher") and Yael Stone ("Orange is the New Black").

While filming "Unverified", Cooke’s latest film "Memories" is anticipated to hit the upcoming award circuit with his leading performance opposite Macedonian starlet Mia Challis, herself known for Kriv Stenders’ "Red Dog: True Blue".

This role marks another entry on Cooke’s resume in the realm of high-profile online content where he received the 'Most Outstanding Actor' award for his role at the Los Angeles Web Festival.

Cooke is represented by Karli Doumanis Management and Artist Management Australia.
