MICHAEL SHEEN JOINS CBS ALL ACCESS' "THE GOOD FIGHT"

Seasons One and Two of "The Good Fight" Are Available to Binge Now, Exclusively on CBS All Access

Nov. 7, 2018 - CBS All Access announced today that Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Michael Sheen ("Masters of Sex") has joined the cast of THE GOOD FIGHT for its upcoming third season. Season three of CBS All Access' hit original drama series is set to premiere in early 2019, and seasons one and two of THE GOOD FIGHT are available to binge now, exclusively on CBS All Access.

Sheen will play Roland Blum, a brilliant, charismatic and Machiavellian lawyer. He is a man of appetites - drugs, sex, you name it - who's far more interested in winning than the niceties of following the law.

Sheen is known for his starring roles in the Academy Award-nominated films "The Queen," "Frost/Nixon" and "Midnight in Paris." Other film credits include "The Twilight Saga" films, the "Underworld" franchise and the recent Netflix film "Apostle." He recently completed filming opposite Robert Downey Jr. in "The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle."

On television, Sheen has earned multiple awards and nominations for his performances in "Kenneth Williams: Fantabulosa!" and "Dirty Filthy Love," as well as his portrayal of Tony Blair in HBO's "The Special Relationship" and of Dr. Bill Masters in four seasons of the acclaimed SHOWTIME series "Masters of Sex," of which he was also a producer. In addition, he has created memorable characterizations for NBC's "30 Rock," HBO's mockumentary "7 Days In Hell," the IFC miniseries spoof "Spoils of Babylon" and Michael Bolton's "Big Sexy Valentine's Day Special" for Netflix. He will next appear in Neil Gaiman's "Good Omens" for Amazon.

Season three will also include series regulars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.

The world went crazy in the THE GOOD FIGHT's second season, and now, in season three, the resistance does. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) tries to figure out whether you can resist a crazy administration without going crazy yourself, while Adrian Boseman (Delroy Lindo) and Liz Reddick-Lawrence (Audra McDonald) struggle with a new post-factual world where the lawyer who tells the best story triumphs over the lawyer with the best facts. Meanwhile, Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) balances a new baby with a new love, and Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) finds a new Mephistopheles in Roland Blum (Michael Sheen), a Roy Cohn-like lawyer who is corruption incarnate.

Robert and Michelle King serve as showrunners and executive producers of the series, which they co-created with Phil Alden Robinson. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and William Finkelstein also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. The series is distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
