Ellen Barkin

Ellen Barkin has been cast in her first series gig, according to Deadline.com.

The actress has been cast to co-star opposite Don Johnson in Michael Patrick King’s drama pilot A MANN’S WORLD.

The series, produced by Warner Bros. TV, stars Don Johnson as Allan Mann, a fiftysomething handsome and sexy straight Beverly Hills hairdresser struggling to stay young and relevant in a place where looks are everything.

Barkin is set to play the role Allan’s forgiving, funny ex-wife and the mother of their three children. They built his beauty empire together, before she decided to remove herself from the day-to-day operation. Now she serves as his financial and, occasionally, emotional adviser.

Though this is the actress’ first series role on television, she has done several television movies, winning an Emmy for one of them, 1997’s When Women Had Wings.
