Robert Cavanah has been cast as Jared Fraser
From Access Hollywood:
Robert Cavanah has been cast as Jared, Jamie’s Scottish cousin who lives in Paris, France.
Jared is a successful wine merchant (and strong Jacobite). Jamie and Claire will live in his mansion in Paris in Season 2. They will also manage his business while he travels to the West Indies.
In Diana Gabaldon’s “Dragonfly in Amber,” Claire meets Jamie’s cousin at his warehouse on the docks of Le Havre, before he shows the couple around.
Robert was born in Edinburgh and does it all – acting, writing, directing and producing.
He played Heathcliff to Orla Brady’s Cathy in 1998’s “Wuthering Heights,” and MI6 agent Stevens in “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” in 2003. He’s also appeared on US shows, including Showtime’s “The Borgias,” and History’s “Hatfields & McCoys,” and UK dramas “The Bill,” “Doctors” and “Eastenders.”

From E! Online:

Book fans know that although he doesn’t come close to the treachery of Black Jack Randall, he’s also a bit of a villain. Weber will appear in most of the episodes that take place in Paris.
