HBO's David Milch drama is adding a Homeland star to its ranks.
David Harewood has joined the cast of Milch's The Money pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Money revolves around James Castman (Brendan Gleeson), a powerful media mogul who wields power and influence to expand his empire and control his family. Nathan Lane plays Gordon, a reporter for VistaCorp's New York Herald who is desperate to garner evidence for a hot story.
Harewood, who played Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul's (Mandy Patinkin) CIA boss on Showtime's Homeland, will play Kurt Corbitt, a grandiose, boisterous, irascible ideologue and the CEO of the parent company to Castman's holdings.
