One show is not enough for these TV stars, all of whom are working overtime this fall

Posted on

Michael K. Williams

Boardwalk Empire

The ex-Wire star plays Chalky White, the undeclared leader of Atlantic City’s African-American constituents.


As Professor Kane, a biology teacher with a degree from prison, Williams gets to sprinkle a little comedy into his menacing persona.

Ted Danson

Bored to Death

Danson stars on this dark comedy as George, a Graydon Carter-esque former magazine editor who has a weakness for drugs and women.


Taking over for Laurence Fishburne’s straitlaced Dr. Langston, Danson portrays D.B. Russell, an eccentric family man.

Malese Jow

The Vampire Diaries

Jow is the undead Anna, a tormented vampire who was killed, only to return as a ghost.

Big Time Rush

Things are much sunnier for Jow on the Nickelodeon series, where she costars as Lucy, a famous rocker whom the titular boy-banders are eager to impress.

Kenny Johnson

Sons of Anarchy

Johnson’s outlaw biker Kozik is a hothead with a knack for breaking the rules.

Prime Suspect

As Matt Webb, a.k.a. Det. Jane Timoney’s (Maria Bello) contractor boyfriend, Johnson has a much easier time staying on the right side of the law.
