Leavey is based on a woman named Leavey and her military dog Rex, whom during their duty in Iraq searches for bombs that could possibly be threats to other soldiers.

Common, who will be working alongside Edie Falco, Bradley Whitford and Tom Felton, will play Sergeant Gunney Massey, the man in charge of the kennels – probably will ol’ Rex resides.

We’re sure Common will do a great job with this role, as he has slammed dunked roles in past; The Wiz and Selma.
