Daniel Sauli (Show Me A Hero) and Sepideh Moafi (Black Box) have joined the cast of David Simon’s HBO drama pilot The Deuce in recurring roles.
A narrative set in the Times Square demimonde of the 1970s and ’80s, The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed in midtown Manhattan until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market ended the bawdy turbulence. James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Margaret Levieva star.
Sauli, repped by CESD, plays Tommy Longo, a mafia debt collector who has business with the Martino brothers. Moafi, repped by Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, is Loretta, a streetwalker who works for pimp Larry Brown and introduces Candy to a new side of the sex trade.
Sauli was recently seen as Mayor Terry Zaleski in David Simon’s Show Me A Hero. He will next be seen in HBO’s Confirmation, Netflix’s House Of Cards, and the feature film Bleed For This opposite Miles Teller. Moafi recurred on ABC’s Black Box and also appeared on Limitless, The Blacklist, Forever and The Good Wife.
