Michael Ealy has been cast in the lead role for season two of ABC’s anthology crime drama series Secrets & Lies. He joins season one’s sole returning cast member Juliette Lewis.
The first season starred Ryan Philippe as Ben Crawford, a family man who discovers the body of a young boy and almost immediately becomes the main suspect in his violent death.
Michael will portray Eric Warner on the series.
Smart, well-educated and hard working, Warner is at the top of his game — he’s the heir apparent to his family’s private equity firm in Charlotte, NC, newly married to “the one” and walking on air. Eric is attending a party to honor dad passing over the reins when suddenly tragedy strikes — his wife Kate is murdered, and life, as he knows it, is over.
The second season of Secrets & Lies is tentatively scheduled to begin airing in early 2016.
