Casting News - Jesse Williams Books Recurring Role on Hulu's 'Only Murders in the Building'; Plus 2 More Updates!

Casting News - October 25, 2022

AppleTV+'s Land of Women; Hulu's Only Murders in the Building; and Starz's Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

  • Amaury Nolasco, Santiago Cabrera, Gloria Muñoz and Victoria Bazua will co-star on the upcoming comedy starring Eva Longoria and Carmen Maura. Nolasco currently stars in Starz's Hightown, which has been renewed for a third season. Cabrera previously starred for two seasons in Paramount+'s Star Trek: Picard and recurred on HBO Max's The Flight Attendant. Muñoz starred for two seasons in the Spanish comedy Dangerous Moms. Bazua is a newcomer.
  • Nolasco will play Kevin, the trainee hitman after Gala (Longoria) and her family. Excessively worried about his physique and his number of followers on social media, he holds just enough malice for the job.
  • Cabrera will play Amat, who has lived in La Muga for only a couple of years. While he likes to keep to himself, he has a heart of gold and has quickly earned the affection of the townsfolk... and perhaps even Gala's. He spends most of his time among the vines and in the little winery that he shares with the village co-op.
  • Muñoz will play Mariona, Julia's (Maura) estranged sister. Though childhood best friends, she never understood why Julia left town and never forgave her for not even writing a world. Mariona is full of hurt and resentment until Julia walks back into her life like a wake-up call.
  • Bazua will play Kate, Gala's teenage daughter enjoying her freedom at boarding school far from her overbearing mom. That is until she is bamboozled into joining a "girls' trip" only to discover her family is now on the run. Sardonic and bold, she has inherited her grandmother's rather dark sense of humor. Though sometimes this is just a facade to hide her insecurities.
  • Jesse Williams has booked a recurring role on the comedy's upcoming third season. He previously starred for twelve seasons in ABC's Grey's Anatomy. Earlier this year, he received a Tony Award nomination for his performance in the play Take Me Out.
  • He will play a documentarian with a particular interest in the case Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles (Steve Martin) and Oliver (Martin Short) are working on.
  • Grantham Coleman has landed a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. He previously guest starred on FX's The Americans, CBS' NCIS, Hulu's 11.22.63 and NBC's The Carmichael Show.
  • He will play Ronnie Mathis, Unique's (Joey Bada$$) older brother, who was recently released from prison. His stoic demeanor belies a shocking ruthlessness. It's not that Ronnie's immoral, it's that he's amoral, conscienceless, unyielding and vindictive.
