Gregory Itzin Cast in HBO’s BIG LOVE

Actor Gregory Itzin has signed on to recurring role on the HBO series “Big Love.” The exact number of episodes Itzin will appear in is unknown, but the role is described as being a major recurring position during the upcoming fifth season of “Big Love.”

Itzin will play the role of Senator Richard Dwyer. Dwyer is the Republican Majority Leader in the Utah State Senate. Bill Paxton’s character, Bill, is now a member of that same senate. After a less than impressive season four for “Big Love,” the addition of a big name can only help the show as it strives to improve during its fifth season. Production for the fifth season is expected to get underway sometime this week.

Itzin is a two-time Emmy nominee and best known for his role as a villain on the cast of “24.”
