'Halt and Catch Fire' Star Kerry Bishe Books Showtime's 'Billions' (Exclusive)
The future of Halt and Catch Fire may be up in the air, but Kerry Bishé has locked a new gig. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the actress will appear in an episode of Showtime's buzzy new drama Billions.
She's set to guest as Elise, an "alluring young musician" who forces Damian Lewis' lead character, Bobby Axelrod, to question his life choices.
Billions is set to premiere Jan. 17. Also starring Paul Giamatti, it chronicles the perils of chasing the American dream through Bobby, a brilliant hedge fund king, savvy U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and their impending collision.
In addition to playing Donna Clark on two seasons of Halt and Catch Fire, Bishe also appeared on Scrubs and in Oscar-winner Argo.
She is repped by WME and Brookside Artist Management.
