‘Masters Of Sex’ Season 4 Spoilers: Showtime Adds Corey Reynolds As Niecy Nash’s Man [DETAILS]
"Masters Of Sex" is adding a slew of fresh faces to jazz up the Showtime series' fourth season. After casting Erin Karpluk, Betty Gilpin, Niecy Nash, Kelli O'Hara and David Walton, the period drama has cast "Getting On" actor Corey Reynolds, TVLine reports.
Reynolds will star as the husband of an an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) chairperson named Louise Bell. Louise Bell is played by Niecy Nash. Incidentally, Nash and Reynolds had also co-starred in "Getting On," which means that "Masters Of Sex" is staging a mini-"Getting On" reunion.
Bell and her husband are important to season 4's plot because they will be a part of Bill Masters' (Michael Sheen) storyline. As we reported earlier, AA chairperson Bell will be in charge of running Masters' court-ordered daily meetings. Of course, Michael Sheen's character is definitely not someone to talk about his feelings at an AA meeting, but Nash's Bell will push him to reevaluate his life. She is also a staunch believer of AA's message.
Masters certainly needs to reevaluate his life after it took a turn for the worse in season 3. In the season finale, the surgeon was slapped with a lawsuit and prostitution charge. He was framed by surrogate Nora.
The doctor spent the night in jail where his wife Libby confessed to knowing about his relationship with fellow sex researcher Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) all these years. In one night, Bill lost his family, his practice and his lover. Virginia fled with perfumer and to-be-husband Dan Logan.
However, fret not, Bill and Virginia will soon be reunited as seen in the season 4 trailer. After Virginia's marriage with Dan falls apart and Bill hires a high-powered attorney to fight the charges, the two sex researchers join forces to revive the practice. Additionally, season 4 will take place from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.
Watch "Masters of Sex" on Sunday, Sept. 11, at 10 p.m. EST on Showtime.
