When they cast Matthew Rhys to star in The Americans - an original spy thriller with a married couple at its heart - he was riveted by the pilot, because "it was so far from a procedural." Now, HBO is reportedly eyeing him to do the opposite, and embrace the starring role of one of the best-loved procedurals of all time, Perry Mason.
In an exclusive for ThatHashtagShow.com, HBO revealed their potential replacement for Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming reboot. For now, it's just a possibility, but we'll let you know if the premium network can sway The Americans star to take on the part of TV's top criminal defense lawyer.
