Big Little Lies adds Denis O’Hare in recurring role for Season 2


Casting news keeps trickling in for Season 2 of Big Little Lies.

Big Little Lies continues to round out its cast for Season 2.

Producers tapped Denis O’Hare, who you recently saw on This is Us, to appear in a recurring role for the second season of the limited series.

O’Hare will play Ira Farber, a completely new character. But HBO didn’t release any more information about his character, and who Ira will be tied to next season.

The three-time Emmy nominated actor also appeared in American Horror Story and The Good Wife. And you may know him from movies like The Proposal, Dallas Buyers Club, and Milk.

O’Hare joins a slew of actors and actresses joining the Emmy-Award-winning series next season.

HBO previously announced Douglas Smith, Kathryn Newton, Crystal Fox, and Sarah Sokolvic would join the ladies of Monterey Bay. But the most notable addition is that of Meryl Streep, who will play Mary Louise Wright. Mary’s son, Perry, died last season, and she shows up to try to find out what happened.

According to Deadline, Season 2 of Big Little Lies will explore the “distortion of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.” It also seems as if the relationship between the main characters may be in jeopardy.

Big Little Lies stars Nicole Kidman as Celeste Wright, Reese Witherspoon as Madeline Mackenzie, Shailene Woodley as Jane, Laura Dern as Renata Klein, Zoë Kravitz as Bonnie Carlson, and Adam Scott as Ed Mackenzie.
