Marin Ireland (Homeland) has been tapped as a recurring on the second season of Showtime’s Masters Of Sex. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan star as William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the pioneers of human sexuality whose research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a Midwestern teaching hospital to the cover of Time magazine. Ireland will play Pauline, the wife of Frank (played by recently announced guest star Christian Borle). The couple comes to town seeking Masters’ help in conceiving a child. Ireland, repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management, next will be seen on WEtv’s first scripted drama The Divide, set to premiere July 16.
Sam Waterston has landed a role in Grace And Frankie, the upcoming Netflix comedy starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. The series revolves around longtime nemeses Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin), whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married. Waterston will play Frankie’s husband, who has been keeping his secret from her for 20 years. Waterston stars on HBO’s The Newsroom — on which Fonda recurred — and toplined NBC’s Law & Order from 1994-2010. He is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment.
