Actor William Baldwin to Appear on ‘Copper’

Be My Valentine (Hallmark) (9)

Actor William “Billy” Baldwin will guest star in the final two episodes of the upcoming second season of Copper, playing William “Wild Bill” Eustace, a tough and charming Tammany Hall fixer with a genius for political machination. The scion of a successful river barge owning family, Eustace left home as a teenager to work on whaling ships. Upon his return, he bought a number of saloons in the City and parlayed his connections into real political power. Comfortable navigating the complicated streets of New York, Eustace is a rising star in the City’s power structure and the man sent in to make problems go away.

‘Copper’ centers on Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones), an Irish immigrant police detective trying to keep the peace in the historical Five Points neighborhood in 1860s New York City while searching for information on the disappearance of his wife and death of his daughter. The cast includes Kyle Schmid, Anastasia Griffith, Franka Potente, Ato Essandoh, Kevin Ryan, Dylan Taylor, Kiara Glasco and Tessa Thompson.

Most recently, Baldwin has appeared in episodes of ‘Parenthood’, ‘Hawaii Five-0’ ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ and ‘Gossip Girl’. He has also appeared in the films ‘Flatliners’, ‘Backdraft’, ‘Fair Game’ and ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ as well as the made-for-TV movies ‘The Craigslist Killer’ and ‘Be My Valentine’.

The second season of ‘Copper’ will be back on BBC America starting on Sunday, June 23 at 10 PM.
