Josh Radnor has joined the cast of The Hunt. 

The casting continued for Amazon’s 1970s-set drama. According to multiple outlets, the How I Men Your Mother alum has been cast to star opposite leads Al Pacino, Logan Lerman and Jerrika Hinton. 

The Nazi-hunting series hails from David Weil, who penned the screenplay. Loosely inspired by real-life events, The Hunt follows a band of Nazi hunters who have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among them and are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the US. 

Amazon put out an order for a 10-episode first season in May of last year. The series is executive produced by Get Out writer-director Jordan Peele, who has an overall TV deal at Amazon. Weil will also serve as co-showrunner with Nikki Toscano. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) will direct the first episode.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Radnor will play Lonny Flash, a movie star who is secretly a member of the group led by Pacino’s character. 

Also starring are Lena Olin, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Tiffany Boone, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Greg Austin and Dylan Baker.
