Roché will play Klaus Jager, a Nazi hauptmann who heads a group of Gestapo in the French city. Jonah Hirsch and Tyler W. Konney are producing. Roché can be seen in recurring roles on Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle and HBO’s The Young Pope. He is repped by Abrams Artists Agengy and John Carrabino Management.
