Michael Bay is continuing to build the cast he needs for true-life thriller 13 Hours. He’s just added actor David Denman to the ensemble as he prepares to kick off shooting next month{ =nofollow}.

Written by Chuck Hogan, the script adapts Mitchell Zuckoff’s book 13 Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi. The focus will be on six members of a security team who fought to defend the US State Department Special Mission Compound in Libya when terrorists attacked the place. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and one of the compound’s workers died in the initial assault and two contractors were killed during another attack on a nearby CIA facility.

John Krasinski – who worked with Denman on the US version of The Office – is starring alongside James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Pablo Schreiber, with Denman recruited as an elite sniper named Boon.

In addition to The Office, Denman has also been seen in After Earth, Men, Women & Children and Smart People. He’s just worked on Joel Edgerton’s as yet untitled directorial debut and will report for duty on the 13 Hours set this April, with Bay scheduled to film in Malta and Morocco.
