Saving Grace’s Leon Rippy Gets Devilish for LEVERAGE

The LEVERAGE crew is getting a new adversary for its fourth season and, according to TV Guide, he will be played by Leon Rippy of Deadwood and Saving Grace fame. Just don’t expect the second coming of angel Earl.

Rippy will recur on the TNT caper drama as Mr. Latimer, a wealthy and diabolical investor-type who figures out Nate (Timothy Hutton) and the team’s Robin Hood schemes and uses that knowledge to bilk money from the companies the Leverage gang targets. He is scheduled to appear in at least five episodes to be spread out through the season. While we don’t know when Mr. Latimer will first show up, as long as doesn’t bring The Italian with him, it’s all good with me.

How do you think Rippy will be as Nate’s newest nemesis?

The fourth season of Leverage premieres on TNT Sunday, June 26 at 9pm eastern/8 central.
