Aaron Lazar Replaces Steven Pasquale in Upcoming Fox Series, FILTHY RICH
Filthy Rich is a southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion collide - with outrageously soapy results. When the patriarch of a mega-rich Southern family, famed for creating a wildly successful Christian television network, dies in a plane crash, his wife and family are stunned to learn that he fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will, threatening their family name and fortune.
Lazar will play Reverend Paul Luke Thomas, the beloved, popular, influential and ambitious minister at the Sunshine Network.
Lazar has starred on Broadway in the first ever revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music, and in two world premieres: Impressionism with Jeremy Irons & Joan Allen, and A Tale of Two Cities. Other Broadway credits: Les Miserables (Drama Desk nomination), Mamma Mia!, The Phantom of the Opera, Oklahoma!, and The Light in the Piazza at Lincoln Center and "Live from Lincoln Center" on PBS. He most recently appeared on the national tour of Dear Evan Hansen.
Film & Television credits include The Wolf of Wall Street, This is Where I Leave You, J.Edgar, The Notorious Bettie Page; "Blue Bloods," "The Good Wife," "The Following," "Person of Interest," "A Gifted Man," "Onion News Network," and "Ugly Betty."
