Mary Grill Takes ‘The Detour’; Billy Campbell Joins ‘Medici: Masters Of Florence’

Mary Grill (The Mindy Project) has booked a recurring role on TBS comedy The Detour. Created by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, The Detour is inspired by Jones and Bee’s own experiences with family getaways. It follows a couple and their two young kids as they take a road trip to Florida. Grill will play an FBI agent who appears at the top or at the end of every episode interrogating Nate (Jones). She is a tough, no-nonsense agent trying to get to the bottom of all the goings-on, but reveals herself to be quite a unique character. Grill recurred on The Mindy Project and has guested on Veep and Mad Men. She’s repped by Gersh, Bleecker Street Entertainment and attorney Mitch Smelkinson.

Helix and The Killing alum Billy Campbell has been cast in a recurring role in drama series Medici: Masters Of Florence, from Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Prods and Lux Vide. The eight-part series, starring Richard Madden and Dustin Hoffman, chronicles the rise of the Medici family and the Italian Renaissance. Medici dramatizes the story of the family’s ascent from simple merchants to power brokers who sparked an economic and cultural revolution, in the process creating a long list of powerful enemies. Campbell will play Bernardo Guadagni, Gonfaloniere of the Signoria – the ‘speaker of the house’. He is a loyal supporter of the Medici and friend to Cosimo. He understands the vision the Medici has for the future of Florence, and although committed to their cause, has to navigate his way carefully through the other members of the house and those who oppose the Medici. Campbell is repped by CAA and LINK Entertainment.
