Fresh off his chilling portrayal as serial killer Theo Noble in the third season of Fox’s The Following, Michael Ealy has signed on to his next project.
Deadline is reporting that Ealy has signed a one year deal to be the lead for the second season of the ABC anthology series Secrets & Lies.
He will star opposite the only returning cast member from Season 1 Juliette Lewis-who will reprise her role as Detective Andrea Cornell.
Ealy will play newlywed Eric Warner, a smart, well-educated and hard working, heir apparent to the family’s private equity firm in Charlotte, NC. During a party to celebrate his father passing the torch, his wife is murdered and that turns his life upside down.
Season 2 of Secrets & Lies will premiere midseason.
