American Crime stars Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton are set to return for John Ridley’s ABC anthology crime series’ upcoming second installment. I hear talks with other cast members are ongoing, and there are expected to be a number of new regulars. “It’s a completely different scenario and a completely American_Crime_ABCdifferent crime, even placed in a different part of America,” ABC’s Paul Lee said of Season 2 earlier this week, noting that Ridley has created “very specific new roles” for “some of these iconic actors from Season 1.” Details about the storyline of Season 2 and Huffman and Hutton’s characters are being kept under wraps. Season 1 followed the aftermath of a murder in Modesto, California, with Huffman and Hutton playing the victim’s parents. Like the first installment, Season 2 will film in Austin Texas, with production likely to begin in July.
Some new photos added to the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery from the “American Crime” ATAS Special Screening Friday evening.
A huge update to the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery with caps from the last couple of episode of American Crime.
I’ve updated the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery with 5 new stills from American Crime.
David Mamet’s two-character play, which had a notoriously brief run on Broadway in 2012, will receive a staging in Los Angeles with two actresses who are closely associated with the famed playwright: Felicity Huffman and Rebecca Pidgeon.
Organizers said the play will open April 24 for a month-long run at Theatre Asylum, a small space in the heart of Hollywood’s Theatre Row district. Huffman will play the role of Cathy, a political radical and longtime prison inmate, who engages in a philosophical debate of sorts with a prison official (Pidgeon).
The first episode of American Crime is capped and in the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery.
What was your first reaction when you read John Ridley’s pilot script?
I thought it was shocking. I thought it was a pilot and it would never make it to series, so I thought, I’m just signing on for a pilot — that’s great. And I thought I would love to be a part of that.
What struck you most dramatically?
Because I was reading it from the point of view of the character I would play, Barb, I thought it would be a tightrope walk to play that character because it’s hard to make someone so driven — you know, her motivation is pure, but the way she presents it is so off-putting — I thought that would be a tightrope walk, and I was interested in the challenge.
