An actor known for his role on the AMC drama “Mad Men” is joining a Golden Globe-nominated sitcom. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Vincent Kartheiser, “Mad Men’s” Pete Campbell, has signed on for a prominent recurring role on Hulu’s “Casual.”
Season two of the Hulu series is currently in production. The new season “follows Alex (Tommy Dewey), Valerie (Michaela Watkins) and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) after a season full of disastrous dates and their parents’ wedding, trying to rebuild their lives outside the home,” THR reports.
Kartheiser will play Jordan, who heads a venture-capital company and arrives to work with Alex. THR notes: “The character is highly competent, professional and seems like the perfect business partner — until Alex realizes that Jordan is engaged to one of his former girlfriends.”
“Casual” received a Golden Globe nomination in 2015 for Best TV Series — Musical or Comedy.
