O'Byrne joins the series -- which follows the lives of two brothers (Jason Isaacs, Jason Clarke) in the Irish-American neighborhood of Providence, R.I., known as the Hill -- in its upcoming second season, which is set to debut in the fall with 10 hourlong episodes.
The actor will play Colin Carr, a cousin of the brothers who comes from Ireland to Providence and gets involved in Michael's (Isaacs) criminal world. He is described as a handsome Irishman who speaks with a brogue and uses his charms to get his way but, when all else fails, resorts to merciless and guiltless violence.
Brotherhood, which is shot in Providence, also stars Annabeth Gish, Ethan Embry, Kevin Chapman, Fiona Erickson and Fionnula Flanagan. It recently won a George Foster Peabody Award in the entertainment series category.
O'Byrne won a Tony for featured actor in a play for his role in Frozen and was nominated for a Tony for lead actor in a play for Doubt. His film roles include Million Dollar Baby, The New World and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.
