William Forsythe & Charlie Cox Join The Boardwalk Empire Cast For Season 2

The production on Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire has recently begun and new cast members are being added. Today it has been announced that two more actors have joined the stellar cast. William Forsythe and Charlie Cox have signed on as regulars. Forsythe will play Manny Horvitz, a Philadelphia mobster looking to expand his turf to Atlantic City. Cox will play an Irish gangster who has connections to the Irish Republican Army (the IRA), which was only brewing during this period.

Forsythe and Cox are very talented actors but they join an already strong cast including the excellent Steve Buscemi, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Stephen Graham etc and they are going to have to do a lot to shine. As for the show itself, it is expected to debut in the Fall and I cannot wait, I loved the first season and thought it was the best thing HBO had done in terms of serial drama in a long time. It also promises to be a big Emmy contender going up against the much loved Mad Men this year in what promises to be a fascinating Emmy race. (Screen Rant)
