Big casting news from Five Points. Last month we revealed Sons of Anarchy star Donal Logue would be joining the cast of Copper – now we’re thrilled to announce Lee Tergesen and Eamonn Walker have signed on as guest stars in the upcoming season!
Fans of Tom Fontana’s HBO drama Oz will recognize Copper‘s newest names – Oz featured Tergesen as Tobias Beecher and Eamonn Walker as Kareem Said. For their Copper roles, Tergesen will guest star as Philomen Keating, an intelligent criminal mastermind in vice-laden 1865 New York City, and Walker will take on the role of legendary abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass.
Production for Copper Season Two is currently underway, and the series is slated to return to BBC America this summer.
