Three solidify cable series roles
Join USA's 'White Collar,' FX's 'Lights Out' and HBO's 'Hung'Marsha Thomason has joined USA Network's light drama "White Collar," Billy Brown has been added to FX's new drama series "Lights Out" as a regular and Gregg Henry has been upped to series regular on HBO's comedy "Hung."
In a rare series return, Thomason ("Lost") will play junior FBI agent Diana Lancing on "White Collar's" upcoming second season. She played the role in the pilot for the show, but when it was picked up to series, the character was replaced by a new one (Natalie Morales). There will be a role reversal on the show's upcoming season, with Thomason, repped by Domain and KW Entertainment, returning as Lancing and Morales departing.
"Lights Out" centers on Patrick "Lights Out" Leary (Holt McCallany), an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to support his wife (Catherine McCormack), a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and three daughters after his fighting days are over.
Brown ("Star Trek"), repped by Talentworks and Benderspink, will play Raymond "Death Row" Reynolds, the current heavyweight champion and longtime rival of Leary.
"Hung" centers on endowed high school basketball coach Ray (Thomas Jane), who moonlights as a male prostitute. Henry, repped by Domain and Framework, will reprise his recurring role on the show's first season as Ray's assistant coach.
