Donal Logue Joins BBC America's 'Copper' for Season 2
Copper is adding some new blood during its second season.
The BBC America original, which recently resumed production, has added Donal Logue (Terriers) as a series regular. The actor will play Sixth Ward boss and Civil War general Brendan Donovan in the period drama.
“Season two is driven by flawed and haunted characters living in explosive times,” said co-creator and executive producer Tom Fontana. “Each of them is looking for renewal in the wake of last season’s revelations and violent upheaval. The ongoing storylines follow Detective Corcoran [Tom Weston-Jones] and company on their paths to redemption or ruin.”
Also joining the series is Thomas Kelly. Previously serving as writer and supervising producer on CBS' Blue Bloods, Kelly joins Fontana and Barry Levinson as executive producer.
Logue, who recently has done arcs on Sons of Anarchy, Royal Pains and upcoming History drama Vikings, is repped by UTA.
