Crime - HBO Miniseries - Cast Announced

Michael Kenneth Williams, Amara Karan, Jeannie Berlin and Glenne Headly have joined the cast of HBO’s eight-hour miniseries Crime (formerly Criminal Justice). The project’s executive producer Steve Zaillian, who helmed the original pilot co-starring the late James Gandolfini, is set to direct multiple episode, with James Marsh (The Theory Of Everything) tapped to direct one.

The New York crime story, a passion project of Gandolfini, centers on Jack Stone — played by John Turturro, who replaced the Sopranos star — an ambulance-chasing New York City attorney who gets in over-his-head when he takes on the case of Pakistani Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed), accused of murdering a girl on the Upper West Side.

Williams will play Freddy, the head of a NY gang, controlling his nexus of power within the walls of Rikers Island. Berlin is Helen, a New York DA’s Office lifer assigned to prosecute the case against Nasir Khan. Headly portrays Alison, a successful attorney specializing in high profile cases, who comes on board to defend Nasir Khan. Karan, plays Chandra, a young attorney involved in attempting to prove Nasir Khan’s innocence.

They join previously cast Turturro, Ahmed, Bill Camp, Payman Moaadi and Poorna Jagannathan.
