Eric Roberts leads new 'Crash' cast
With Dennis Hopper returning, 'Crash' will be back on Starz on Sept. 18
Leading the way among the fresh faces is Eric Roberts ("The Dark Knight," "Heroes"), who will play a Seth, billionaire entrepreneur attempting to bring an NFL team to Los Angeles. Julie Warner ("Doc Hollywood") also joins the cast as Andrea, Seth's manipulative right hand woman.
Dana Ashbrook ("Twin Peaks"), Linda Park ("Star Trek: Enterprise"), Jake McLaughlin ("In the Valley of Elah") and Tess Harper ("Tender Mercies") are also new to the cast, while Hopper leads a returning group that includes Ross McCall, Jocko Sims and Moran Atias.
"It’s going to be a thrilling season with our returning cast and the new members of our ‘Crash’ family," says Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president, programming Starz Entertainment. "Eric Roberts is always unpredictable and exciting to watch and Tess Harper is a terrific and highly acclaimed actress. We look forward to an electrifying season with a wonderfully talented cast and crew."
The showrunner for season two will be Ira Steven Behr, new to the show along with executive producer James DeMonaco ("The Kill Point") and supervising producers Todd Harthan ("The Kill Point") and Elizabeth Benjamin ("Bones"). Original "Crash" Oscar winner Paul Haggis remains involved as executive producer.
"The exciting additions to our cast and writing-producing team have opened up the series to a wealth of new dramatic possibilities and we anticipate a very strong second season," says Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate's president of television programming and production.
