Previously reported: 

After making a huge splash on Broadway this past year with Ain’t Too Proud and Choir Boy, Jeremy Pope is making a jump to television.

The Tony nominee has been cast in a lead role for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix series, Hollywood. He’ll also serve as an executive producer on the show, which  is one of the numerous Murphy projects in the work at the streaming giant under his mega-deal.

Pope will star with fellow leads Darren Criss and David Cornswet.

Not much is known about the series, only that it has been described by Murphy “a love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown.”  According to Deadline, who first reported Pope’s casting, the series is “believed to be set in the 1940s and center on three lead characters — played by Pope, Criss and Corenswet.” Their report, which says Murphy immediately reached out to Pope to cast him in the series after seeing him in Ain’t Too Proud and Choir Boy, also says that Pope will play Archie, an aspiring writer.

Murphy’s first Netflix project, The Politician, premiered this weekend.
