The actor, who has been in production since last summer, has filmed in some pretty exotic locations throughout the world, including in the United States, Spain, and Africa.</p>

<p>Garrett is set to play the role of a character named Two Cups in the <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tv/”>upcoming series</a>. We don’t have a lot of information about his character, but we do know that the actor will be featured alongside some pretty big names in <em>Lioness</em>, which centers on a CIA team tasked with taking down a vast terrorist network. </p>

<h2>The cast of ‘Lioness’ has more big names than just LaMonica Garrett</h2>

<p>Apart from Garrett, <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/taylor-sheridans-new-drama-adds-big-names-already-familiar-fans-yellowstone-universe.html/”>the cast of <em>Lioness</em></a> includes some of Hollywood’s biggest names. <em>Locke & Key</em> star Laysla De Oliveira will play the lead role in the series as Cruz Manuelos, a Marine who is hired by the CIA to infiltrate a terrorist group.</p>

<p>Sheridan’s show<a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/lioness-zoe-saldana-and-nicole-kidman-are-joining-the-taylor-sheridan-verse-in-a-new-female-led-series.html/”> also features Zoe Saldaña</a> as Joe, who is in charge of training new CIA recruits, Morgan Freeman, as Secretary of State Edwin Mullins, and Nicole Kidman as Kaitlyn Meade, who is the senior supervisor of the CIA program. </p>

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-width=”550″ data-dnt=”true”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>‘Lioness’: Morgan Freeman Joins Taylor Sheridan’s Series For Paramount+ <a href=”https://t.co/Jlu7H6Ob0y”>https://t.co/Jlu7H6Ob0y</a></p>— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) <a href=”https://twitter.com/DEADLINE/status/1613910077475328000?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>January 13, 2023</a></blockquote><script async src=”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

<p>The remaining cast includes James Jordan, Jill Wagner, Austin Hebert, Dave Annable, Hannah Love Lanier, Jonah Wharton and Stephanie Nur. Saldaña and Kidman, meanwhile, will also work as executive producers on the show.</p>

<p>With an all-star cast in tow, it will be interesting to see how Garrett’s character plays into the plot, especially considering how the idea for the movie is based on a real program within the CIA.</p>

<h2 id=”h-taylor-sheridan-s-lioness-was-inspired-by-true-events”>Taylor Sheridan’s ‘Lioness’ was inspired by true events </h2>

<p>Like many stories that make it to the small screens, <em>Lioness</em> was inspired by true events, though things are a bit exaggerated for the sake of the show. </p>

<p>There really was a program within the CIA called the Lioness Engagement Team that operated in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The main difference is that the team members were trained to search female insurgents while still respecting the culture of the area. </p>

Taylor Sheridan Refused to Back Down From His Insane Demands When He Originally Pitched ‘Yellowstone’ — ‘It’s Going to Cost $90–$100 Million’ </a>
<p>The upcoming series expands this role by having members of the team infiltrate terrorist organizations in an effort to take them down from within. This is slightly different than what happened in reality but definitely makes for a more exciting premise.  </p>

<p>Unfortunately, Sheridan has not revealed when <em>Lioness</em> will officially premiere on Paramount. </p>
