‘Perry Mason’: Wallace Langham Joins Second Season Of HBO Drama
Langham will recur as Melville Phipps, a Los Angeles native and attorney for a very wealthy oil baroness. He works well under women and acts as a caretaker when necessary.
Here’s the logline for season 2 of the drama that stars Matthew Rhys in the title role: Months after the end of the Dodson trial, Perry’s (Matthew Rhys) moved off the farm, ditched the milk truck, he’s even traded his leather jacket for a pressed suit. It’s the worst year of the Depression, and Perry and Della (Juliet Rylance) have set the firm on a safer path pursuing civil cases instead of the tumultuous work that criminal cases entail. Unfortunately, there isn’t much work for Paul (Chris Chalk) in wills and contracts, so he’s been out on his own. An open-and-closed case overtakes the city of Los Angeles, and Perry’s pursuit of justice reveals that not everything is always as it seems.
Jack Amiel and Michael Begler are writers and co-showrunners. The series is based on the characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner.
Previously Announced Season 2 cast include Chris Chalk, Diarra Kilpatrick, Eric Lange, Justin Kirk, Katherine Waterston, Hope Davis, Jon Chaffin, Fabrizio Guido, Peter Mendoza, Onohoua Rodriguez, Jee Young Han, Mark O’Brien, Sean Astin, Tommy Dewey, Paul Raci, Jen Tullock and Shea Whigham.
