An actor with a string of television credits going back to the mid-1980s has been added to the cast of TNT’s revival of “Dallas.” TVLine.com reports that Steven Weber has signed on with the drama series in a recurring role.
“TVLine has learned exclusively that Weber will play Governor McConaughey, an ambitious politico who conspires with Cliff Barnes and Harris Ryland — a gruesome twosome if ever there was — to take down the Ewing family,” the piece reports.
Weber’s first appearance is set for the 12th episode of season two, the report notes.
“In addition to his runs on, of course, ‘Wings,’ ‘Brothers & Sisters’ and ‘Studio 60,’ Weber’s more recent TV credits include visits to ‘Malibu Country,’ ‘2 Broke Girls’ (where he plays Caroline’s father), ‘Parenthood’ and TNT’s ‘Falling Skies,’” the report adds.
Early in his career, Weber was seen on the soap opera “As the World Turns,” along with the TV shows “American Playhouse” and “Crime Story” and the miniseries “The Kennedys of Massachusetts,” where he played John F. Kennedy.
