'Boardwalk Empire' season 4: 'Office Space's Ron Livingston joins show (Spoilers)
02/28/2013 by Corinne Heller
Did you get the memo about Ron Livingston? The actor has joined the cast of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," which last season featured Stephen Root, who co-starred with him in the 1999 cult workplace comedy film "Office Space" as the vengeful worker Milton. Spoiler alert! On the show, whose fourth season premieres in the fall, Livingston will play a "wealthy out-of-town businessman who comes to the Jersey shore and catches the eye of brothel owner Gillian Darmody," played by Gretchen Mol, according to EW.com, which carried the report. Root plays Gaston Means, a corrupt Department of Justice investigator, on "Boardwalk Empire." It is unclear if he will reprise his character. "Boardwalk Empire" debuted in 2010 and stars Steve Buscemi as Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, a corrupt political leader and gangster in Atlantic City during the Prohibition era. Season 3 began airing on September 16. Livingston last appeared on television full time in 2009, when he played the main star, an astronaut, in the short-lived series "Defying Gravity." He also starred as an FBI agent on the show "Standoff" between 2006 and 2007 and played Carrie Bradshaw's disgruntled writer-boyfriend on HBO's "Sex and the City" between 2002 and 2003. The actor has also appeared in the 1996 movie "Swingers" and the 2012 film "The Odd Life of Timpthy Green" as well as the HBO mini-series "Game Change" and Tom Hanks' and Steven Spielberg's "Band of Brothers."
