Tony Goldwyn to Star Opposite Uma Thurman in Upcoming Netflix Drama CHAMBERS

According to Deadline, SCANDAL alum Tony Goldwyn has been tapped as a lead opposite Uma Thurman in Chambers, Netflix's upcoming hourlong supernatural drama from Stephen Gaghan and Super Deluxe.

Created and written by Leah Rachel, who co-showruns with Akela Cooper, Chambers centers on a young heart attack SURVIVOR who becomes consumed by the mystery surrounding the heart that saved her life. However, the closer she gets to uncovering the truth about her donor's sudden death, the more she starts taking on the characteristics of the deceased - some of which are troublingly sinister.

Goldwyn is set to play Ben Lefevre, the father of the heart donor Becky. His warm charm and practical business acumen conceals a mystical bent that knows no bounds. He is also the philanthropic owner of Annex Power. Born in El Paso, Ben's money is self-made, and he attributes a large portion of that to The Annex Foundation - a new age spiritual center. After the death of his daughter, Ben becomes even more devoted to their cause. Thurman plays Ben's wife.

Goldwyn is known for his portrayal of Carl Bruner in Ghost. He is also well known for his turn on the comedy series, Designing Women. In the HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon, Goldwyn played astronaut Neil Armstrong, commander of Apollo 11. The actor provided THE VOICE of Tarzan for the Disney animated flick along with roles in Law & Order, and Dexter. Goldwyn has appeared twice in Off-Broadway shows Spike Heels and The Water's Edge. On Broadway, Goldwyn starred in Promises Promises alongside Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes. Since 2012, he has appeared as President Fitzgerald Grant III in ABC television series Scandal.
