The ‘Good Wife’ and ‘House of Cards’ stars will play key recurring parts in the Showtime drama.
Billions is adding some more star power to its fifth season.
Julianna Margulies and Corey Stoll will each appear in recurring roles on the Showtime drama, which is set to return to the premium cabler in 2020.
Stoll (House of Cards, The Strain) will have a season-long arc as a character named Michael Prince, a business titan with roots in small-town Indiana. Margulies (The Good Wife, ER) will recur as Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and best-selling author.
Season four of Billions found former enemies Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) forming a tenuous but effective alliance — along with Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), the chief counselor to both men — to take out their common rivals, including Grigor Andolov (John Malkovich), Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) Bryan Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and Jock Jeffcoat (Clancy Brown). The show averaged 4.5 million viewers across all platforms last season.
