And you shouldn’t be fooled by the actor’s bright smile in the exclusive image obtained by TVLine, either. According to TNT, not only is Jed unstable — which is really saying something, considering that his sibling isn’t exactly a portrait of mental health — he has “rejected mainstream society and chooses to live in isolation on a rural compound with his beleaguered wife and three children.”
Morgan will debut in the recurring role in Tuesday’s “SHTF” (9/8c) as part of the show’s extensive 1977 flashbacks that have been illuminating how Leila George’s Janine evolved into Ellen Barkin’s tough-as-leather Smurf. Unless I miss my guess, it will also turn out to be Pope’s uncle that in present-day the Cody clan’s cancer-stricken matriarch took off to see in the July 9 episode, “Know Thy Enemy.” (Though obviously, Morgan wouldn’t also be playing the 2019 version of Jed.)
What do you think of Morgan’s casting? Do you suspect that an older Jed and/or his kids will wind up becoming a part of Animal Kingdom‘s cast in Season 5? Hit the comments.
