HBO series ‘Perry Mason’ adds ‘Marriage Story’ and ‘Blue Bayou’ actor Mark O’Brien


EXCLUSIVE: Actor and filmmaker Mark O’Brien set to star in HBO season 2 Perry Mason in the recurring guest star role of Thomas Milligan.

Thomas is the ambitious assistant district attorney of Los Angeles. He is described as an aggressive attack dog in court as he strives to make his mark and soar to greater heights, no matter how much blood he must shed to get there. Season 2 will have eight episodes and Matthew Rhys will return in the title role of the Emmy-nominated series.

Season 2 of Perry Mason takes place months after the end of the Dodson trial. Perry (Rhys) left the farm, abandoned the milk truck, he even traded in his leather jacket for a pressed suit. It’s the worst year of the Depression, and Perry and Della (Juliet Rylance) have put the company on a safer path by pursuing civil cases instead of the tumultuous work that criminal cases entail. Unfortunately, there isn’t much work for Paul (Chris Chalk) in wills and contracts, so he’s been on his own. A case open and closed goes beyond the city of Los Angeles, and Perry’s quest for justice reveals that all is not always as it seems. Additionally, Clara de Diarra Kilpatrick has a new baby and has moved in with her brother’s family. She can feel the walls closing in, even as she has her husband’s back amid increasingly difficult dynamics at home.
