Fenn (Gilmore Girls) will play Madame Renee, a beautiful former call-girl who runs a brothel that Huston's Ben Diamond financially backs. She's described as being a tough woman who can hold her own against "The Butcher" and proves to be one of his most valuable assets.

Fenn is repped by Anthem Entertainment.
