Played by Eddie Cibrian
Russell a Florida Everglades Park Ranger
He is father to Jesse and Rose, with his ex-wife Mariel. Current husband of Larkin and brother-in-law of Dave.
Clearly a decent man, Russell knows his way around the everglades and has marine biology training. He possesses a healthy sceptical streak that conflicts with Dave's absolute belief that something dodgy is going on, but Russell is slowly coming around.
