Jude Law and Jason Bateman's Netflix show Black Rabbit adds to its cast

Earlier this year, we reported about Jude Law and Jason Bateman starring in a Netflix show titled Black Rabbit. As per the latest development, eleven more actors are joining the existing cast of the series: Troy Kotsur, Abbey Lee, Odessa Young, Robin De Jesus, Amir Malaklou, Don Harvey, Forrest Weber, Francis Benhamou, Gus Birney, John Ales, and Steve Witting. Kotsur, Lee, Young, and De Jesus are appearing more regularly in the series than the rest.

Black Rabbit stars Kotsur as a bookie named Joe Mancuso, who has organised crime connections, Lee as a formidable bartender in New York City called Anna, Young as a tattooist named Gen, and De Jesus as a talented chef called Tony. The new cast joins the existing members, which also include Cleopatra Coleman, Amaka Okafor, Dagmara Dominczyk, and Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù.

The official logline of the show reads thus: "When the owner of a New York City hotspot (Law) allows his turbulent brother (Bateman) back in his life, he opens the door to escalating dangers that threaten to bring down everything he’s built."

Kate Susman and Zach Baylin are not only creating the series, but they are also executive producing it through Youngblood Pictures. On the other hand, Bateman is directing the pilot and the second episode of the show, besides executive producing it with Michael Costigan through their banner Aggregate Films. Ben Jackson and Law are executive producing it through Riff Raff Entertainment. The executive production team also includes Andrew Hinderaker, Justin Levy, Zac Frognowski, Erica Kay, and David Bernon.
