Uma Thurman is set to join the cast of Bravo's upcoming drama series My So Called Wife, Deadline reports. The award-winning actress will star in a guest role in a story arc that spans several episodes.
My So Called Wife is a dark comedy that follows a dangerously beautiful con artist Maddie (played by MTV Underemployed's Inbar Lavi), who torments her victims by robbing their possessions and their hearts. The show also stars Rob Heaps (Home Fires), Parker Young (Enlisted) and Stephen Bishop (Being Mary Jane).
Thurman will play Lenny Cohen, the ultimate and mysterious fixer who helps a con artist ring leader. The show, which is executive produced by Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein, began production in Vancouver and is set to premiere in 2017. “Uma and I have been friends for a very long time. I’m thrilled that after many tries we’ll finally get to work together,” Brooks said.
The new gig is Thurman's third TV role since NBC's 2012 musical show Smash and last year's mini-series The Slap. She is currently filming the heist comedy movie The Brits Are Coming.
