The Damages vet has landed a recurring role on NBC’s upcoming miniseries, TVLine has exclusively learned.
Nouri will appear in five of the show’s eight episodes as Thanasis Korkoulis, a super-sleazy attorney who will do anything to win.
Although Thanasis agrees to help Zachary Quinto’s Harry — who finds himself in hot water after slapping another couple’s misbehaving child — he makes it clear that everyone must play by his rules.
Chicago – The excellent film “Selma” focuses on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But just as important as King were the marchers from supporting civil rights societies, such as the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (Sncc), and their leaders like James Forman, portrayed in the film by Trai Byers.
Byers is an up-and-coming actor, with “Selma” being his first major film after stints on the daytime drama “All My Children” and the revival of “90210.” But besides “Selma,” Byers has a high profile part as Andre Lyon, the son of lead character Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) on the huge new Fox Network hit, “Empire.” The freshman drama has already been picked up for a second season, and its maneuverings within the Shakespeare-in-the-music-industry vibe has connected with viewers.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is beautiful, a very talented and often underrated actress, and a warm and charitable person with a happy family life. Essentially, she has it all – and deservedly so.
Having previously appeared in commercials when she was a small child, she made her full acting debut in the made-for-television drama film An Invasion of Privacy in 1983. Then she had several small roles in a number of television shows and movies before truly coming to prominence as Kendall Hart in the long-running All My Children in 1993.
After that, she appeared in movies like Scream 2 and I Know What You Did Last Summer, at the same time rising to superstardom as the titular Buffy Summers in Joss Whedon’s brilliant Buffy the Vampire Slayer – a role she played from 1997 to 2003, with the character also crossing over to spin-off show Angel on occasions.

The daytime soap opera genre is slowing dying out. Series like All My Children and One Life to Live were cancelled a few years ago to pave the way for talk shows that are less expensive for the ABC network. Additionally, NBC decided to cancel Passions in 2007 to make room for another hour of the successful morning news program The Today Show. Before the all these shows were taken off the air, they were able to produce some successful actors that can be seen on many of our favorite prime-time television programs, including some major current hits like Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Following.
