Salvation Season 2 adds Jonathan Silverman and Taylor Cole
As reported exclusively today by TVLine, Jonathan Silverman will appear in Salvation season 2 as Roland Kavanaugh, White House Counsel for President Mackenzie’s administration. Roland is described as “a man ill-equipped to deal with the unprecedented nature of events facing the nation and the world” which doesn’t bode well for him helping to save the planet.
