American Crime Joey Pollari

American Crime Season 2 Adds Inbetweeners Star as Troubled Teen

American Crime plans to explore the highs and lows of high school in its second season, and Joey Pollari (The Inbetweeners) will be at the center of the drama.

The actor has been cast in the series-regular role of Eric Tanner, a teen from a challenged background whose life is publicly torn apart following accusations made in the wake of a school party.

As previously reported, Season 2 of the ABC anthology drama will take place in the Midwest, where the inciting incident involves students from a public high school and private high school in the same town.

Series creator John Ridley told TVLine in June that Season 2 will “deal a lot more with class,” as well as “gender issues, sexual orientation and sexual identity.”

Pollari — whose TV credits also include Major Crimes, Up All Night and the Disney Channel movie Avalon High — is the first non-Season 1 actor added to American Crime‘s sophomore run. He joins Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Regina King, Richard Cabral, Elvis Nolasco and Lili Taylor, all of whom appeared in the show’s first installment.

    Joey Pollari was one of the few bright spots in MTV’s awful adaptation of The Inbetweeners. I’m glad he’d finding more work.
