There’s another newcomer in Five Points…
Give a big Copper-style welcome to William “Wild Bill” Eustace, played by William Baldwin! “Wild Bill” will make waves in the slums of the Sixth Precinct as a political wheeler and dealer, a “risings star” the New York City’s power structure.
From BBC America’s press release:
Nothing is ever as it seems in Five Points… BBC AMERICA and Cineflix Studios promise no shortage of twists and turns for season two of Copper, announcing today that famed New Yorker, William “Billy” Baldwin (Gossip Girl, Hawaii Five-O) will guest star in the last two episodes of the upcoming season as William “Wild Bill” Eustace – a charming Tammany Hall power broker. Also joining Baldwin at the end of the season is Lindy Booth (Kick-Ass 2, Fairly Legal) as Teresa Trembley – protected witness of a high-profile murder in Five Points. Copper, BBC AMERICA’s highest-rated original drama set in 1860s New York City, returns Sunday, June 23, 10:00pm ET/PT.
William “Wild Bill” Eustace (Baldwin) is a tough and charming Tammany Hall fixer with a genius for political machination. The scion of a successful river barge owning family, Eustace left home as a teenager to work on whaling ships. Upon his return, he bought a number of saloons in the City and parlayed his connections into real political power. Comfortable navigating the complicated streets of New York, Eustace is a rising star in the City’s power structure and the man sent in to make problems go away.
