Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Presumed Innocent) and Neal McDonough (Desperate Housewives, Boomtown) have book major recurring roles on Ed Burns’ TNT drama series Public Morals, from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV. Public Morals is set in 1967 in New York City’s Public Morals Division, where cops walk the line between morality and criminality as the temptations that come from dealing with all kinds of vice can get the better of them. It centers on cop Terry Muldoon (Burns), who knows the line between the good guys and bad guys is thin, and he is determined to raise his sons to be honest and hardworking as he deals with the dark underbelly of the vice world. ICM Partners-repped Dennehy will play Joseph “Big Red” Patton, a powerful mobster who controls the west side of Manhattan. McDonough, repped by Paradigm, More/Medavoy, and Stuart Rosenthal, will play Rusty, Joseph’s youngest son who is charming and handsome but ultimately power-hungry and dangerous.
