Former Halt and Catch Fire star Aleksa Palladino has joined the recurring cast of CBS All Access’ mystery thriller drama series $1, from Anonymous Content and CBS TV Studios. Created by Jason Mosberg, $1 is set in a small Rust Belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. The path of the dollar bill, and point of view in each episode, paints a picture of a modern American town with deep class and cultural divides that spill out into the open as the town’s secrets get revealed. Palladino will play Chelsea Wyler, daughter to Charles (Jeff Perry), a retired con man. As a child, she would often help sell her father’s latest con but now, a young woman at a cross-roads, she’s trying to forgive him and find her place in the world. Palladino is best known for her previous starring roles in AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and will next be seen in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. She’s repped by Gersh.
