Former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger has entered a new phase of his life, living in exile after leaving the military. His civilian life doesn't last as long as he expects, though, with the discovery of a plot to kill the president. Former commanding officer Isaac Johnson, now a Secret Service agent, draws Swagger into the investigation by seeking his expertise for a clandestine operation to keep the commander in chief safe. The series is based on the 2007 film of the same name,
Matthew Ryan Phillippe (born September 10, 1974) is an American actor, director, and writer.
Born the son of a Medal of Honor-winning Marine, Bob Lee Swagger followed his father's footsteps into the Corps and became the greatest sniper in the history of the U.S. Marines, earning himself the nickname "Bob the Nailer". After several successful tours and countless heroic (though not always authorized) actions, Bob Lee was wounded in battle, both physically and psychologically -- shot through the hip by the same sniper who killed his spotter and best friend, Donny Fenn.
Now three years after the shooting, the former Gunnery Sergeant is retired and living a quiet life with his wife, Julie, and their daughter, Mary, in Washington State. But while he no longer wears the uniform of a Marine, Bob Lee still has the heart of a warrior, and he's still the best man behind a long gun. Indeed, it's these qualities that send his former Marine commander, Isaac Johnson, calling for help when a sniper threatens to assassinate the President. Unable to refuse the call to defend his country, Bob Lee agrees and finds himself the patsy in a massive conspiracy with world-changing stakes. To clear his name, he will have to evade the untold resources of both the U.S. Government and the conspirators and unravel the plot behind the assassination, all the while keeping his family safe -- an impossible task for any man. But he's not any man. He's Bob Lee Swagger. He's a Marine.
