Matthew Rhys Cast on FX's The Americans
Matthew Rhys has landed his first starring role since Brothers & Sisters, and it's on one of the fall's most intriguing new pilots.
The actor will appear opposite Keri Russell on FX's The Americans, a drama that finds these two residing in the United States as a married couple of undercover Russian spies.
Problems will arise as the Cold War escalates - the series will be set in the 1980s - and as Rhys' Phillip grows more and more attached to life in America.
Joe Weisberg (Falling Skies) and Graham Yost (Justified) will write the pilot and we can't help but wonder: will Russell and Rhys speak with Russian accents?!?
