'White Lotus' Season 2 casts Aubrey Plaza
- Aubrey Plaza has been cast in 'White Lotus' Season 2
- She joins previously cast Michael Imperioli
- Plaza will next appear in Guy Ritchie's 'Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre'
Aubrey Plaza has been tapped for Season 2 of 'White Lotus', the breakout social satire on HBO. The Mark White limited series will see the 'Legion' star join previously cast Michael Imperioli.
Plaza is slated to appear as Harper Spiller, a woman vacationing with her husband as well as his friends. Meanwhile, Imperioli, whose repertoire includes works like 'The Sopranos' and 'Goodfellas', will be seen as Dominic Di Grasso, a man who's accompanied on his journey by his elderly father and son, who's recently graduated from college.
White retains complete creative control of the second installment of 'White Lotus', which is written, directed and produced by him. Since the first part was a miniseries, the second offering will merely see the location shift to another 'White Lotus' property, with different tourists and their new idiosyncrasies.
While viewers might miss the beaches and underlying discontent of the Hawaiian resort, they are likely to find some comfort in seeing the familiar face of Jennifer Coolidge, who is rumoured to reprise her part of the barely tolerable, self-absorbed woman trying to move out of her mother's shadow.
'White Lotus' Season 1 offered a satirical look at bourgeoisie society, critiquing several aspects of performative wokeness and innate human selfishness while putting failing and fractured relationships under the microscope. With a brilliant cast including the likes of Alexandra Daddario of 'True Detective' and 'Baywatch' fame, Season 2 remains much anticipated.
Currently, there is no word on a release date but Plaza will next be seen in a Guy Ritchie movie. The British director known for exposing the quirks of the London criminal world in films like 'Snatch' and 'RocknRolla', is back with a new offering titled 'Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre'. Plaza appears alongside Hugh Grant, who was recently seen opposite Nicole Kidman in the riveting series 'The Undoing'. Other cast members include Jason Statham, who's long collaborated with Ritchie, and Josh Hartnett who's appeared in shows like 'Penny Dreadful'.
