Catching up with 'Shooter' star Omar Epps

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Omar Epps plays Isaac Johnson on USA's "Shooter," a drama that creates a tangled web of espionage involving snipers and a plot to kill the president. 
 
Season 2 of the show premieres Tuesday night. 

Epps stopped by Morning Extra to talk about the action-packed second season and more.  

"Shooter" is based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg.  

The show stars Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger, a highly decorated veteran who must confront a nemesis from his past in order to return to a life of normalcy in season 2. 

Epps plays Isaac Johnson, a former Marine and former commanding officer of Swagger who is now a Secret Service Agent.

“[Isaac] is a guy who believed in the system. As he worked his way up the ranks, things became less black and white and more gray,” Epps says.
