“Full Circle” has a pretty full cast for its upcoming second season.
The DirecTV anthology series has added a slew of actors for its sophomore run, including Stacy Keach, “Lost” alum Terry O’Quinn, Brittany Snow (“Pitch Perfect”), “Ally McBeal” veteran Calista Flockhart, Patrick Fugit (“Almost Famous”), David Koechner and “Perception” actor Eric McCormack.
O’Quinn will play Chicago cop Jimmy Parerra, who became a whistleblower against police corruption nearly two decades ago, a move that led to his father-in-law Bud O’Rourke (played by Keach), getting a life sentence in prison. However, now set to be released from prison, O’Rourke is out for vengeance.
The second season of the series will primarily take place at an Irish bar in Chicago. As in the first season, one character from the previous episode moves into the next episode and is paired with a new character. Unlike the first season, the upcoming season expands the story – in addition to seeing our characters revolve through the bar, viewers will also be privy to the offices conducting an FBI sting operation, as well as to Bud’s visitors at the state penitentiary before he is released.
Of the other new cast members, Bauer will play Jimmy’s ex-partner Richie, Rita Wilson (“The Good Wife,” “Girls”) will play Jimmy’s ex-wife and Bud’s daughter, Shelly. Snow and Fugit will play Jimmy’s daughter and son, Katie and Paulie, while Koecher will portray Paulie’s partner on the police force. Flockhart will play mob boss Ellen, while McCormack will play an FBI agent and Burton will portray his partner.
