Norbert Leo Butz Joins Kyle Chandler Drama

Actor Norbert Leo Butz speaks to the media during the "Big Fish" Broadway Opening Night After Party at Roseland Ballroom on October 6, 2013 in New York City.

Norbert Leo Butz has signed on to co-star in an upcoming Netflix drama alongside Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Ben Mendelsohn, and Sissy Spacek, Deadline reports. The show, from Damages' Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler, focuses on a family of adult siblings (with Spacek as their mother) whose black-sheep brother (Mendelsohn) return and dredges up old secrets. Butz will play the youngest brother, "the extroverted and charming owner of a boat repair yard who considers himself the 'unofficial mayor' of this small coastal town." Butz is great — two Tonys don't lie — but the dream of Kyle Chandler and James Wolk playing brothers endures.
