The second season of HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones has added Jason Schwartzman (Fargo), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight) and Eric Andre (Bad Trip) to its cast.
The Righteous Gemstones is the third HBO series from McBride, Hill and Green after Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals, and revolves around the Gemstones, a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work.
Schwartzman will star as Thaniel, “a journalist working on a story about the ministries”, with Roberts as Junior, a man “who grew up with Eli and suddenly re-enters his life”, and Andre as Lyle Lissons, “a megachurch pastor from Texas who befriends Jesse and Amber.”
Along with McBride, The Righteous Gemstones features a cast that includes John Goodman, Edi Patterson, Adam Devine, Walton Goggins, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz and Greg Alan Williams.
