Frank Whaley (Ray Donovan, Gotham) has been cast opposite Richard Dreyfuss in ABC’s miniseries, Madoff. He will play Harry Markopolosa, a high school math nerd turned cocky finance whiz with a paranoid streak. Inspired by ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross’ reports and his book The Madoff Chronicles, the mini follows the rise and spectacular fall of the now-imprisoned swindler and the $65 billion Ponzi scheme he concocted. Whaley, repped by APA and Karen Forman Management, recently wrapped an arc on CBS summer series Under The Dome and will next be seen in upcoming features The Outskirts and Monster Trucks.
