Rene Auberjonois and Courtney B. Vance will be joining Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan in season two of Showtime’s dramatic series Masters of Sex created by Michelle Ashford. Both actors have signed on to guest starring roles in the critically acclaimed series which is shooting the second season in LA. The cast of season two also includes Caitlin Fitzgerald, Teddy Sears and Annaleigh Ashford.
Masters of Sex season two will premiere on July 13, 2014.
According to Showtime, Vance will be playing Dr. Hendricks, “the head of an African-American hospital in St. Louis whose goal is to racially integrate his hospital.” Auberjonois’ character is Dr. Papanikolaou, “a former professor of Dr. DePaul (guest star Julianne Nicholson), who she and Johnson hope will endorse their screening program that uses the test named after him: the Pap smear.”
Vance’s credits include Graceland, Revenge, The Preacher’s Wife, The Hunt for Red October, and The Last Supper. Auberjonois is best known to TV audiences as ‘Clayton Runnymede Endicott III’ in Benson and has also appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Boston Legal.
Starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the series chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. The series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier’s book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.
