Michael Nouri Joins NBC's The Slap

Michael Nouri The Slap

Michael Nouri will soon have a hand in The Slap.

The Damages vet has landed a recurring role on NBC’s upcoming miniseries, TVLine has exclusively learned.

Nouri will appear in five of the show’s eight episodes as Thanasis Korkoulis, a super-sleazy attorney who will do anything to win.

Although Thanasis agrees to help Zachary Quinto’s Harry — who finds himself in hot water after slapping another couple’s misbehaving child — he makes it clear that everyone must play by his rules.

In addition to his run as Glenn Close’s Damages husband, Nouri’s TV credits include NCIS, All My Children and The O.C.

The Slap bows Thursday, Feb. 12 at 8/7c.

    the original from Australia (directv) wasnt that great and since the U.S. has a horrible record on “re do”, I expect this to be awful

  2. Salvador says:

    Michael did such a great job on a couple of NCIS spots , that I look forward to seeing his in this role.

    I’m still trying to figure out what the heck this show is supposed to be.

      An event at a family gathering serves as a catalyst in opening the flaws, dilemmas, and insecurities of individual characters, tackling issues affecting contemporary families today.

    I’ve liked Michael since his soap opera days (and don’t forget about Flashdance). I’ll give the show a try; I’d love to see Zachary and Michael play off each other.

    Nouri’s an amazing actor..fantastic to see him again

  6. Natalie says:

    Great actor but very self-involved in real life. Sad that so many actors have so little to offer outside their gameface personas.

  7. Anna M says:

    Ironic. Didn’t Michael Nouri get arrested for beating up his girlfriend a few years ago? And now he is going to play a sleazy lawyer? Poor poor insecure man. Perfect type-casting.

  8. Heidi says:

    Anna: The case was dismissed against Nouri—he didn’t “beat up” anyone. Natalie: Unless you know the man, how can you judge him? I’ll bet if anyone’s “personal life,” as portrayed by the press (and we all know how honest and accurate their accounts are) was held up for public consumption, they would fall exceedingly short too. If you must judge, judge this wonderful actor’s performances only.
