Former One Life to Live actor Tobias Truvillion (ex-Vincent Jones) has made a name for himself on the hugely popular primetime soap Empire, and now he's off to flex his acting muscles in another exciting series. The Queens, New York, native has been cast in BET's straight-to-series ten-episode legal drama In Contempt.
The series is set in the fast-paced world of a legal aid office in New York City and follows Gwen Sullivan (Erica Ash), an opinionated attorney whose passion for her job and clients make her arguably the most talented public defender in her district. Truvillion will play Bennett Sherman, Gwen's longtime secret crush and former law professor.
In Contempt also stars Megan Hutchings (Reign) as Tracy Campbell, a public defender and Gwen's friend and roommate; Christian Keyes as Charlie Riggs, an attorney with an ego, who is Gwen's boss and friend with benefits; Mouna Traoré as Vanessa Winters, a rookie attorney learning what it means to be woke; Richard Lawson (Poltergeist, Grey's Anatomy) as Earl Sullivan, Gwen's father; Ronnie Rowe Jr. as Gwen's professional nemesis; and Daniel Kash as Gwen's boss.
