The Following continues to expand its flock, adding inimitable Boss actress Connie Nielsen to its Season 2 cast as a series regular, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Nielsen will play Lily Gray, a Soho art dealer who finds herself in a bit of trouble. When Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) comes to her aid, a connection begins to form which causes even more problems for her.
This marks the Fox hit’s second major Season 2 hire, following last week’s casting of Dexter‘s Sam Underwood as a young man who may or may not be a follower of the “late” Joe Carroll (James Purefoy)
Nielsen, who is also known to TV audiences as Law & Order: SVU‘s Det. Dani Beck, will next be seen on the big screen in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac and McG’s Three Days of Kill opposite Kevin Costner.Follow @MichaelAusiello
