Leland Orser has joined the cast of Epix’s first original drama series Berlin Station. The 10-episode contemporary spy series from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, follows Daniel Meyer (Richard Armitage), a newly anointed case officer who has arrived at the CIA foreign station in Berlin to uncover the source of a leak who has supplied information to a whistleblower. Guided by jaded veteran Case Officer Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans) — a darkly charming, tenacious agent who works for Chief Steven Frost (Richard Jenkins) — Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field agent: agent-running, deception, the dangers and moral compromises. Orser will play Robert Kovac, the CIA Section Head. The actor plays Father Romero on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, and other TV credits include Magic City, Revolution, Touch and ER. Orser also appeared in Faults and the past two Taken movies. He is repped by Gersh and the Burstein Company.
Hamilton star Renee Elise Goldsberry has booked a series regular role in TV Land’s dark comedy pilot I Shudder. Written by Paul Rudnick, it centers on Elyot Vionnet (Hamish Linklater), an advocate of manners, style and, most important, common decency. Observing people committing heinous crimes of etiquette, he tries to counsel them from afar, inserting himself into their lives most unwelcomely. When the individuals he deems classless choose not to take his advice, they are met with terrible consequences. Goldsberry, repped by Innovative Artists and Sweet 180, plays Lucy Wainscott, a lovely, high-spirited, down-to-earth woman. Although she was born rich, she lives a happier and more fulfilled life by driving an ambulance and helping anyone in need. Goldsberry next appears in the feature Sisters. She also has recurred on The Good Wife, The Following and Law & Order: SVU.
