Dominic West will topline Showtime's 'The Affair'
Dominic West is continuing his odyssey around your TV's cable tiers by signing on for a lead role in the Showtime drama pilot "The Affair."
Written by Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi, "The Affair" focuses on infidelity from male and female perspectives, looking at two marriages and one affair.
West will play husband and father-of-four Noah in the Mark Mylod-directed pilot.
While you probably know West best for his role as Jimmy McNulty on HBO's "The Wire," he's also done "The Hour" and "Appropriate Adult" on the small screen in recent years, while he'll never be seen as Richard Burton in "Burton and Taylor" on BBC America.
