Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) continues his hot primetime television career with news this week that he is set to play part of a core family that Annalise (Viola Davis) counsels in the second half of the season of ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder!
According to TV Line, Bethel, the former star of The Young and the Restless and Hart of Dixie, has landed the role of Charles Mahoney, the Ivy League-educated son of Wallace played by Adam Arkin. Wallace is said to be a Warren Buffet type who’s quiet and observant, but knows how to command a room when he wants. And looks for Roxanne Hart to play Sylviam, the tough yet distinguished and smart socialite mother of sexy Charles!
Look for these three to make their first appearances on HTGAWM when the series returns starting on February 11th. In addition, the report goes on to say that it is possible Bethel and his on-screen parents may carrying over into season three once the show is greenlighted with an official renewal.
HTGWM showrunner Pete Nowak previewed on how the new trio play into story: “The Mahoney family plays a really big part in a legal case in our last six episodes. They’re very wealthy people. It’s a murder case, and it involves Annalise in a big way.” One other thing Nowak noted was that the Mahoney clan is in no way connected to any of Annalise’s prior clients, or to the people in her inner circle.
