Ashlie Atkinson IMDB

From Deadline today comes news that Ashlie Atkinson — a Little Rock native and Hendrix College grad who appeared in Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” — will be cast on the final season of USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” as Janice, “a chatty taxidermist with a peculiar sense of humor.” Atkinson plays the role opposite Christian Slater and Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Check out our interview with Atkinson (a former Arkansas Times intern) from earlier this year, and a memorable conversation we had with her back in 2013.
