Exclusive: USA's Fairly Legal Serves Up a Savory Helping of Meat Loaf
The rocker-slash-actor, born Marvin Lee Aday, will guest-star in Episode 9 as Charlie DeKay, an old-school, blue-collar transportation union boss with a dirty mouth who wields an iron fist as he threatens to bring San Francisco to a halt in order to protect his workers. Enter Sarah Shahi’s Kate Reed, as your preternaturally telegenic mediator.
Meat Loaf’s previous TV credits include Celebrity Apprentice, Monk, House and a wink-wink cameo during Glee’s Rocky Horror Picture Show homage.
Fairly Legal premieres its Season 2 on Friday, March 16, at 9/8c (where it will lead into the final season of In Plain Sight). Other announced guest stars include Desperate Housewives vet Mark Moses and FlashForward alum Barry Shabaka Henley, while Aussie hunk Ryan Johnson is on board as a new series regular, playing a sharp, up-and-coming trial attorney/potential romantic interest for Kate.
