The Following and Almost Human actor, Michael Ealy has been tapped for a leading role in the highly anticipated second season of the addictive ABC crime drama, Secrets and Lies. Deadline reports Ealy has signed on for the leading man, Eric Warner, and will star alongside Juliette Lewis in the new season. Lewis is the only cast member returning from season one and Cornell will be taking on a whole new case.
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.
