Brad Beyer, who co-stars in box-office hit 42, has joined the the upcoming season of USA’s Royal Pains as a recurring. Also set to recur on the medical show is Alexandra Socha (Damages). Jericho alum Beyer will play local police officer Don Barrett who befriends Hank (Mark Feuerstein). A single dad, Don lives with his teenage daughter Molly (Socha). He develops a number of symptoms that he attributes to the stress of dealing with his daughter’s newly rebellious teen attitude — but that Hank believes is caused by a larger medical issue. Beyer is repped by Abrams Artists and Mary Erickson Management.
Dohn Norwood, who has been recurring for the first two seasons of AMC’s period Western Hell On Wheels, has been made a series regular. He plays Psalms, a railroad worker who has become the front man of the Freedmen (ex-slaves) and serves as a moral compass as he and Elam Ferguson (Common) navigate their way through the treacherous and racially divided world of Hell On Wheels. Norwood is with SDB Partners.
