Rory O'Malley, Tony-nominated for his performance in The Book of Mormon, will co-star opposite Tony nominee Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence in the comedy series "Braddock & Jackson," according to Deadline.com.
The FX/Lionsgate, 10-episode series will star Grammer and Lawrence as Chicago lawyers from different backgrounds who develop a partnership after they unexpectedly meet on the worst day of their lives.
O'Malley, also seen in Broadway's The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, has been cast as the office manager of Grammer and Lawrence's law firm.
Grammer, a Tony nominee for La Cage aux Folles, has also been seen on Broadway in Macbeth and Othello.
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.
