Blair Underwood to join 'Dirty Sexy Money' cast
Carnegie Mellon grad Blair Underwood is joining the cast of ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money," playing a thorn in the side of the family with all that dirty, sexy money.
The actor will play a "zillionaire" named Simon Elder on the show, which is scheduled to air on Wednesday nights in the fall. As described by series creator Craig Wright, Elder is the world's third- richest man, thanks to his invention of a superfast computer processor, but couldn't be more different from the old-money Darling family headed by Donald Sutherland.
Underwood, 42, has several projects in the works. He is finishing up his debut as a feature-film director of the indie drama "The Bridge to Nowhere," which was shot in Pittsburgh. In addition to "Dirty Sexy Money," he also stars in HBO's drama "In Treatment," which is due early next year, and is set to reprise his role on CBS' "The New Adventures of Old Christine." He's also producing shows for TLC and TV One.
"Dirty Sexy Money" stars Peter Krause as the lawyer for the fabulously wealthy Darling family. The show also stars Jill Clayburgh, Natalie Zea, Zoe McLellan, Glenn Fitzgerald, Samaire Armstrong and Seth Gabel.
