Banshee’s Frankie Faison has booked a series regular role on Toast, ABC’s hybrid comedy pilot from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland, Scott Foley and Greg Grunberg.

The project revolves around the engaged couple Max (Jono Kenyon) and Page (Jerrika Hinton), who, over their wedding rehearsal dinner, have their eclectic family and friends give toasts recalling anecdotes about the couple – but flashbacks reveal that the toasts don’t always get it right, as we watch the true story of their complicated, funny and relatable road to marriage. Faison will play Big Earl, the self-made and energetic father of Page, who is funding her over-the-top wedding with the fortune he’s made with the family auto business.

Known for his roles in HBO’s The Wire and the Hannibal Lecter franchise,  Faison currently plays Sugar Bates in Cinemax’s Banshee. He’s repped by Vanguard Management.
