Corey Stoll & Julianna Margulies join Billions season 5
Golden Globe nominee Corey Stoll (House of Cards, The Strain, Ant-Man) and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, The Hot Zone, Dietland) have joined Showtime’s hit drama series Billions for its fifth season.
Margulies is set to guest star as Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author. Stoll will play Michael Prince in a season-long arc. The character is a business titan from a small town in Indiana.
The series stars Oscar nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti (Sideways) and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (Homeland). Maggie Siff (Sons of Anarchy), Asia Kate Dillon (Orange Is the New Black), David Costabile (Breaking Bad), Toby Leonard Moore (Daredevil), Condola Rashad (Smash), Emmy nominee Jeffrey DeMunn (The Green Mile), and Kelly AuCoin (The Americans) also star.
In season four of Billions, Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti), former enemies, and Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), the chief counselor to each, came together to form an uneasy but highly effective alliance, aimed at the eradication of all their rivals, including Grigor Andolov (guest star John Malkovich), Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), Bryan Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and Waylon “Jock” Jeffcoat (guest star Clancy Brown). Ambition and betrayal have long been at the heart of Billions, and last season all the characters found out exactly how high a price they had to pay to satisfy those needs.
Billions is created and executive produced by showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien. The series was also created by Andrew Ross Sorkin.
Season 5 is currently in production in New York and will return in 2020.
