THE AFFAIR’s Maura Tierney has joined the new Showtime series RUST. Bill Camp, David Alvarez, Alex Neustaedter, and Julia Mayorga have also signed on as series regulars.

The series, which stars Jeff Daniels, is based on Philipp Meyer’s novel “American Rust.” It is set to begin production in Pittsburgh in late March.

According to Showtime, “RUST is a compelling family drama that will explore the tattered American dream through the eyes of complicated and compromised chief of police Del Harris (Daniels) in a Rust Belt town in southwest Pennsylvania. When the woman he truly loves sees her son accused of murder, Harris is forced to decide what he’s willing to do to protect him.”

Here’s who the actors will be playing…

  • Tierney will play Grace Poe, a woman from a devastated Pennsylvania steel town trying to organize a union among co-workers at her dress factory, while her son Billy (Neustaedter) is accused of murder.
  • Camp will play Henry English, a disabled former steel worker and widower who has placed the entire burden of his care on his son, Isaac (Alvarez). When Isaac runs away, Henry is forced to call his daughter Lee (Mayorga) back from her new life in New York City and finally reckon with the reality of his wife’s death.
  • Alvarez will play Isaac English, a recent high school graduate who abandons both his ailing father and his troubled friend to hitchhike cross-country. He’ll have to weigh the value of self-discovery against that of personal loyalty.
  • Neustaedter will play Billy Poe, a former high school football star who turned down a scholarship to stay in town. When he’s accused of the murder of an ex-cop, he must weigh his personal loyalties with the value of his own life.
  • Mayorga will play Lee English, a young woman, who upon graduating from Columbia Law School, is pulled back to her hometown as her brother runs away, and her father’s condition deteriorates.

RUST is executive produced by Dan Futterman, Michael De Luca, Jeff Daniels, and Elisa Ellis.
