Jennifer Beals has landed a recurring role on Amazon’s upcoming drama “The Last Tycoon,” TheWrap has learned.
Beals joins a cast that already includes Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer, Lily Collins and Rosemarie DeWitt. The series, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel (published posthumously in 1941), is inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg.
It follows Hollywood’s golden boy, Monroe Stahr (Bomer) as he battles father figure and boss, Pat Brady (Grammer) for the soul of their studio.
Beals will play the recurring role of Margo Taft, a Hollywood star who came up through the school of hard knocks and gets her way on every picture, playing mind games to establish her absolute supremacy on the set.
