The About a Boy actor will recur on Season 4 of the Showtime series as Abe Perlman, Masters and Johnson’s high-powered attorney in a case that pits science against the State, our sister site Deadline reports.
Having represented the Black Panthers and Weathermen, the charming and handsome Perlman loves a highly publicized legal battle. He would be considered cocky if he didn’t have the brains and expertise to back up his reputation.
Season 4 of Masters (premiering Sunday, Sept. 11, at 10/9c) begins in 1968, and, per Showtime, will “take viewers into the swinging ’70s, during which time the series’ characters will take on new partners both professionally, personally and sexually.
Walton recently recurred on New Girl. His other TV credits include a string of comedies — Bent, Perfect Endings, 100 Questions — as well as the drama Heist.
