The 56-year-old actor, who will next be seen in Fox's franchise 'The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,' will play the role of Captain Marcus Powell, the NYPD lead officer in charge of the situation with a gunman holding a TV stock tip announcer named Lee Gates (Clooney) hostage, Deadline.com reported.
