Development News - Maggie Siff to Co-Star on 'Billions'; Luke Wilson & Imogen Poots Join Cameron Crowe's Roadies'

Development News - December 8, 2014

Showtime's Billions and Roadies.

  • Sons of Anarchy alum Maggie Siff will co-star on the drama pilot opposite Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti. She will play Wendy, Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) wife. After graduating at the top of her medical school class and training as a psychiatrist, she is now a highly in demand performance coach who works with some of the most powerful and influential figures in the world of high finance.
  • Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor and Rafe Spall have been cast on the comedy pilot from writer-director Cameron Crowe. Wilson will play Bill, the road-weary, sleep-deprived tour manager who is five years sober and the best friend that a band could have on the road. Poots will play Kelly Ann, a first-rate electrical tech with a great heart, questionable people skills and a desire to make her mark on the world. Castle-Hughes will play Donna Mancini, the outspoken and passionate sound mixer. Cambor will play Milo, an offbeat American anglophile guitar tech who revels in his road-worthy, slightly scuzzy charm. Spall will play Reg Whitehead, a wildly successful British financial adviser sent by management to oversee the crew's budget, though he knows nothing about the music business.
