Most recently, Mulroney has played Sean Pierce on the Showtime series “Shameless.” He also appeared on the Golden Globe-winning Amazon series “Mozart in the Jungle.” Augustus Prew will play James Bell, the billionaire tech genius determined to revolutionize healthcare.
Brenda Song will play Angie, a programmer at Bunker Hill Hospital.
, will recur as “ex-bad boy and recovering addict” Sean Pierce, Fiona’s manager at Patsy’s Pies — where she began working in the Season 4 finale.
Throughout the season-long arc, Sean will take an interest in Fiona — but he’ll have to compete with at least two other interested parties, played by Aussie actor Axle Whitehead and Tony winner Steve Kazee.
Mulroney will play Walter Wallace, a brilliant surgeon committed to saving lives who might care a little too much about his patients.Michelle Lee will executive produce along with former “Parenthood” showrunner Jason Katims, who will pen the pilot.But that hasn’t stopped speculation about such a project, with Entertainment Weekly and Film School Rejects both endorsing the idea. Mulroney said a possible premise for a sequel would have his character Michael still married to Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) when Julianne (Roberts) resurfaces to snatch him back.
“I think everybody wants it,” Mulroney told in New York last week. Julia and I talked about it recently, and she thought it would be an amazing idea.” “My Best Friends Wedding,” distributed by Sony Pictures, grossed 0 million worldwide, created the template for the modern-day gay best friend (see Rupert Everett’s George Downes) and reignited Roberts’ box office reign in the late ’90s (with the help of “Notting Hill” and “Runaway Bride”). In 2001, producer Jerry Zucker said a second film, tentatively titled “My Best Friend’s Divorce,” was unlikely.
