After making his regular TV series debut earlier this year on BBC and Amazon's A Very English Scandal, the 58-year-old actor is joining Kidman on the David E. Kelley HBO limited series. He'll play Kidman's successful therapist character's seemingly devoted husband, an acclaimed pediatric oncologist, whose disappearance leads to "a chain of terrible revelations."
