05 Mar 2014
Two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz has signed on for a new Netflix series from "Damages" creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, according to Deadline.com.
A Tony Award winner for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can, Butz will join Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini and Sissy Spacek in the 13-episode series about a close-knit family whose secrets are revealed when their estranged, eldest son returns home.
Butz will portray the youngest son, who considers himself the unofficial mayor of the family's small hometown.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
