Jennifer Beals joins ‘The Last Tycoon’

Jennifer has landed a recurring role on Amazon’s upcoming drama “The Last Tycoon”

The cast includes Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer, Lily Collins and Rosemarie DeWitt.

The series, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel (published posthumously in 1941), is inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg.
The Last Tycoon follows Hollywood golden boy Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer), as he battles father figure and boss Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammar) for the soul of their studio. In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon shines a light on the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930’s Hollywood.

Jennifer will play Margo Taft, a regal, dignified and manipulative Hollywood royalty star who came up through the school of hard knocks and gets her way on every picture, playing mind games to establish her absolute supremacy on the set.
