It’s a case of secrets & lies for Clifton Collins Jr. …
The 43-year-old Mexican and Spanish American actor has signed on to co-star alongside Ryan Phillippe, Juliette Lewis and KaDee Strickland in ABC’s drama pilot Secrets & Lies.
The project centers on Ben (Phillippe), a family man who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body.
Collins, who appeared on the network’s short-lived drama Red Widow last season, will portray Ben’s childhood friend and the tenant in Ben’s pool house who is unwaveringly supportive of Ben.
Collins most recently starred in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim and guest-starred on NBC’s The Blacklist. His other television credits include The Event, Southland and Alias.
He’ll next appear opposite Johnny Depp in Transcendence.
