Denis Leary Joins ANIMAL KINGDOM Season 3


Denis Leary (Rescue Me) is set to recur on TNT drama series Animal Kingdom when the show returns this summer.

Animal Kingdom centers on teen Joshua “J” Cody (Cole), who moves in with his freewheeling, criminally inclined relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose.

Leary will play Billy, Deran’s (Weary) drifter dad who Smurf (Barkin) kicked out years ago.

“Denis Leary’s extensive and successful career playing complicated, flawed characters makes him the perfect addition to this badass Animal Kingdom family,” said Sarah Aubrey, EVP of original programming for TNT.
