Deadline has reported that three new actors have officially joined the cast of “Mrs. Davis,” which already boasts the talents of Margo Martindale, David Arquette, Elizabeth Marvel, Jake McDorman, Andy McQueen, and Ben Chaplin. The new additions are Chris Diamantopoulos, Ashley Romans, and Katja Herbers, who will be playing as-yet-undisclosed characters.
Diamantopoulos is a sitcom mainstay who’s arguably best known for his role as Russ Hanneman, the loud, rapacious, and altogether obnoxious billionaire investor who helps fund Pied Piper on HBO’s “Silicon Valley.” He has also had recurring roles on shows like “Episodes,” “The Office,” and “Arrested Development.” But his TV experience is not limited to comedy, as Diamantopoulos has also had substantial roles on dramatic series like “24” and “Good Girls Revolt.”
Romans is an up-and-coming actor who broke out playing Hermione Granger on the fan-created Potterverse web series “Hermione Granger and the Quarter Life Crisis,” before migrating to broadcast TV with recurring roles as Alvira on “I’m Dying Up Here” and Alex on “Shameless.” On the single season of FX on Hulu’s “Y: The Last Man,” she played Culper Ring secret service agent Sarah Burgin, better-known as Agent 355.
Herbers is a Dutch film and TV actor who has been crossing over to American television with a series of substantial roles on major productions, including Helen Prins on “Manhattan,” Evi Sneijder on “The Americans,” Emily Grace on “Westworld.” Currently, she stars as Dr. Kristen Bouchard on “Evil.”
