Joe Morton, Geoff Stults and Barry Bostwick have all been cast in Netflix’s upcoming comedy GRACE AND FRANKIE. The series stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two frenemies whose lives are turned upside-down when their husbands fall in love and annouce they plan to get married. Morton will play Jason, one of Frankie and her husband’s oldest friends. Stults has been cast as Mitch, an OBGYN and father of two who is married to Grace’s daughter. Bostwick will play Bill, a friend of Grace and her husband who is also newly divorced. Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play Grace and Frankie’s husbands, respectively.
Morton currently stars as Olivia Pope’s father, Rowan Pope, on ABC’s “Scandal,” a role he will reprise for the show’s fourth season. He is also known for his work on the Sci-Fi series “Eureka” (before it became Syfy) and for his roles in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Speed,” and “American Gangster.”
Stults, like Morton, is well known for his roles on various TV series, including “Enlisted” and comedy “Ben and Kate.” He has also appeared on the big screen with roles in “Wedding Crashers,” “The Break-Up,” and Clint Eastwood’s biopic “J. Edgar.” Most recently, Stults starred in the CBS comedy pilot “Cuz-Bros” with fellow “Enlisted” alum Parker Young.
Bostwick’s TV credits include stints on “Spin City,” “Scandal,” and “Enlisted,” so he’s in good company here. Way back in the day, Bostwick starred as Brad in Jim Sharman’s original “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
