Ray Liotta, Mamie Gummer Among David Milch 'Money' Cast Additions
HBO's David Milch drama pilot Money has firmed up its cast, adding eight regular and recurring players to its ranks including Ray Liotta and Mamie Gummer.
The Money revolves around James Castman (Brendan Gleeson), a media mogul who wields power and influence to expand his empire and control his family. Nathan Lane plays Gordon McCarren, a reporter for VistaCorp's New York Herald who is desperate to garner evidence for a hot story.
Liotta (Goodfellas, Hannibal) will recur as George Archer, a wealthy, entitled, untouchable Wall Street tycoon.
Gummer (Emily Owens, M.D.; Backstrom) will recur as Tricia Castman, John Castman's (Boardwalk Empire's Patrick Kennedy) wife from old New York money.
John Carroll Lynch (Body of Proof) will recur as Robert Harris, the CFO of the parent company of Castman's many holdings.
Rosemary Harris (the Spider-Man feature films) has boarded the drama in the recurring role of Ellen Knox, Ruth Castman's (Laila Robins) mother and James' mother-in-law, who is described as sharp, funny, outspoken and fearless.
Billy Magnussen (As the World Turns) has nabbed the series regular role of Greg Castman, James and Ruth's middle and probably favorite son.
Ruth Negga (World War Z) is set to play series regular Erin Foley, the no-nonsense and stylishly attractive senior news editor who reports to John Castman.
Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire) will also have a regular role as Sidney, a trusted associate of James Castman who has known him for a long time.
Tracee Chimo (The Five-Year Engagement) will also recur as Jane Mulvaney, a PI who works closely with McCarren (Lane).
The group joins a cast that also includes Homeland's David Harewood, who plays Kurt Corbitt, a grandiose, boisterous, irascible ideologue and the CEO of the parent company to Castman's holdings.
Milch penned the pilot and will executive produce alongside Art Linson and John Linson. Frank Rich will also exec produce, with Justin Chadwick on board to direct and co-exec produce alongside Eric Roth and Sarah Caplan.
Liotta is repped by UTA, Untitled and Hansen Jacobson; Gummer is with CAA and Anonymous Content; Lynch is with Abrams Artists and Suskin Management; Harris is with Independent Talent Group and Parseghian Planco; Magnussen is with Bauman Redanty & Shaul, Authentic Talent and Sloane Offer; Negga is with ICM and Principal Entertainment; Chimo is with Innovative and Principal Entertainment NY.
