After becoming another Jigsaw victim in "Saw III" (2006), Flatman played General Thomas Bennett in "The Kennedys" (History Television, 2011) and Darryl F. Zanuck in "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" (Lifetime, 2015), and landed the roles of NSA director Charles Beeter in "The Andromeda Strain" (A&E Network, 2008), Colonel Galen Marsh in "Defiance" (Syfy, 2013- ) and head of security Wally in "Fargo" (FX, 2014- ).
