He has an on-again off-again relationship with his lead singer, but is emotionally stunted. When his fifteen-year-old daughter shows up suddenly, he has to face his weakness and learn to grow up." He'll also receive a co-executive producer credit on the series. (Deadline.com)
GOLIATH (Amazon) - Julia Jones and Leslie Grossman have both scored roles on the upcoming season. Jones will play Stephanie Littlecrow, "a Hollywood stuntwoman and unlikely heiress to a coveted piece of property who becomes a thorn in the side of the Central Valley's biggest corporate farmers who want her land no matter what the cost." And Grossman will recur as Rochelle Purple, "a bold and brassy financial advisor who knows better than to leave herself vulnerable to the mercurial and potentially deadly temperaments of Wade and Diana Blackwood."
