Deadline is reporting that Freddie Stroma will be joining 13 Hours, a film by Michael Bay about the assault on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. He will play a brash Yale grad who is an undercover CIA agent in Libya.

The film is based on the book Thirteen Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff, which follows the true story of the events on September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked a U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound and a CIA station in Benghazi, Libya.
