Apple adds Billy Crudup, Gugu Mbatha-Raw to cast of morning show drama

Apple is continuing to expand the cast of its Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon led morning-show drama. Following news earlier this week that Steve Carell had signed onto the project, Variety now reports that actors Billy Crudup and Gugu Mbatha-Raw have also joined the cast. Mbatha-Raw, who is known for recent roles on “Black Mirror” and “A Wrinkle in Time,” will play Hannah Shoenfeld, described as a “whip-smart and charming” talent coordinator, while Tony Award-winner Crudup is being cast as Cory Ellison, the president of the morning show network’s news division.
