Casting Breakdown "The Consoler"


[JOHNNY APREDA] Male. Late 20s. An extremely good looking athlete. Johnny is a rarity in New York; an attractive, devout Catholic who doesn't live with his mother. Deeply traumatized when a coach sexually abused him in his childhood, he has dedicated himself to presenting an impressive, charming, masculine, untroubled façade to the world. Now working for the bank of the Archdiocese, he is assigned to administer settlement payments to molestation abuse victims. Watching their testimonial videos pushes him over the edge – with violent consequences for a co-worker who has fallen in love with him. GUEST LEAD

[NATALIE FINNEGAN] Female, 30s. Formerly an extremely wild, edgy party girl, she has now become pious and committed to repenting her hedonistic ways. Finding her best friend dead of an apparent suicide, she is devastated to think she would be denied Catholic burial rites, and thus tampers with the scene to suggest a murder. GUEST STAR

[THERESA ESPINA] Female, Latina, early 30s. "Mona Lisa in business attire," Theresa is a prim woman, a devout Catholic whose had a very hard time finding a man whose faith matches her own. Very bright and very lonely, a woman who lives with her cats and her MBA from Harvard, Theresa is a senior VP for a Wall Street bank, and among her duties, she funnels settlement money from the Catholic Church to victims of sexual abuse. Having fallen in love with one such victim, Johnny Apreda, Theresa embezzles money earmarked for another victim and moves it into Johnny's account -- and dies soon after, an apparent suicide... SEVERAL SCENES IN TEASER (5 lines)

[TOM KILPATRICK] Male, late 40s–50s. Could be heavy. A man who has lived his life a devout Catholic, and is now the CEO of the bank of the Archdiocese of New York, tasked with distributing settlement money to victims of sexual abuse by the clergy. Shocked by the death of one of his employees, Tom is initially reluctant to cooperate with the detectives, and eventually shocked to discover criminal acts committed by his staff. TWO SCENES

[HELEN RICHARDSON] Female, 40s, any ethnicity. This no-nonsense woman is the founder of an organization called "Fresh Start," a support group for the victims of sexual abuse by the clergy. TWO SCENES

[ILANA CARNEY] Female, Midwestern, 20s. She is the caretaker for her aunt Alice, a victim of sexual abuse, who has since been in a car accident that left her virtually brain-dead. TWO SCENES

[CONSTANTINE] Male, Croatian, 50s, heavily accented. A religious man, the super of the building where the murder victim resides. 3 LINES/TWO SCENES

[CARDINAL RYAN] Male, 70s, feeble but extremely regal, a striking face. A Roman Catholic cardinal who listens in mounting fury as one of his subordinates unrepentantly confesses to multiple acts of adultery. ONE LINE/TWO SCENES

[WHITE SHOE LAWYER] Male, 40s – 50s. WASP. An extremely experienced and high-end defense attorney. He represents Monsignor Milano when he's questioned by Eames and Goren, and appears to be convinced that the detectives have an agenda: to drag the Church through the mud. ONE SCENE

[LAWYER] Male or female, 30s. A low-end jackal of a defense attorney, who does their best to stop their client from making a series of damaging revelations to the detectives. ONE SCENE

[DETECTIVE SERRANO] Male, 30s, any ethnicity, a cop with Gold’s gym muscles. ONE SCENE

Wow Iam so excited. This sounds really good and looks like Goren and Eames are right back to work! That will make some of the fans very happy!!

val said...

But how do they get back into Major Case?

Kris Ann said...

I'm still in shock - a happy kind of shock - that we're getting this 10th season with Goren and Eames. YAY!!!

Sandy said...

I think they will have to explain how they are back, if they expect any kind of credability to the season. O f course, they can do that in the first l5 minutes, or take the whole show to do it, but I think it will be done in the first episode. They can't really be Goren and Eames again completely unless they become partners in crime fighting officially!

Sharon said...

Seems to me there could be a whole episode devoted to how they get back to major case - hope this doesn't mean it's going to be a throwaway explanation.

mauigirl said...

Maybe we'll find out how they got back together in bits and pieces during the first epi. So, not all at once in the first 3 minutes, rather different things will be revealed as the epi unfolds.

Personally I think D'Onofrio is over-worked, and perhaps tries a bit too hard for some of this (but boy do I think he's super talented), I believe what his dad said about him putting his heart and soul into his work, and maybe going beyond certain boundaries.

Like Michael Vartan, I think he's extremely 'under-rated' and under valued too in Hollowood. I'd LOVE to see him bring 'Angela Bassett' and 'Ralph Fiennes' (together) to at least one episode of 'Criminal Intent', they did a bang up job in 'Strange Days'.

Very glad to see them back in the saddle once again, they were sorely missed.
