Tom Pelphrey of Ozark teams up with a Law and Order SVU star for a role that isn’t on Netflix.
Tom Pelphrey, who played Ben Davis in season three of the acclaimed Netflix thriller OZARK, has secured a major new role on HBO Max with a slew of other notable actors.
In Ozark season three, Ben Davis (Tom Pelphrey) was probably one of the most talked-about newcomers to the fray. Ben, the unstable brother of Netflix series regular Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney), was brutally killed in sad scenes under his sister’s orders during his one-season stint. Pelphrey, on the other hand, has lost no time in arranging up his next assignment, appearing in the HBO Max drama Love and Death starring Elizabeth Marvel, a regular on Law and Order: SVU.
Love and Death is a planned HBO Max limited series based on the true event of Betty Gore’s 1980 murder in Wylie, Texas, at the hands of her friend Candy Montgomery.
The series is based on the book Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburb, which featured interviews with both Gore and Montgomery family members in the years following the murder.
Pelphrey will play Don Crowder in the limited drama, and he isn’t the only famous personality attached to the project.
Elizabeth Olsen, who starred in WandaVision, plays Montgomery in the upcoming thriller, while Lily Rabe, who starred on American Horror Story, plays Gore.
Pastor Jackie Ponder will be played by Marvel in Love and Death, and she has previously been in Manifest, Law and Order: SVU, and Homeland.
Atypical’s Keir Gilchrist, Gone Girl’s Patrick Fugit, and Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemons have also signed on to appear in the HBO limited series.
Pelphrey has been in the Oscar-nominated blockbuster Mank since leaving Ozark, and has roles in the upcoming projects Jill and American Murderer.
Will Pelphrey, on the other hand, return in Ozark’s fourth season? Fans will be disappointed to learn that showrunner Chris Mundy has spoken openly about Ben’s destiny.
Given the dubious circumstances surrounding Ben’s final appearance, many fans predicted that he would rise from the grave.
