'The Deuce': We'll see more of David Krumholtz, Daniel Sauli, Sepidah Moafi and Olivia Luccardi in season 3
The actors previously starred in the show in the recurring roles of Harvey Wasserman, Tommy Longo, Loretta and Melissa respectively, and will now be regulars
'The Deuce' has reportedly added David Krumholtz, Daniel Sauli, Sepideh Moafi and Olivia Luccardi to join their cast roster as series regulars for the next season. The actors were previously featured in the first and second season as recurring actors.
Krumholtz played the character of Harvey Wasserman, the up and coming porn director who makes a breakthrough in the industry. His character took an important turn after he started working with Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) in season 2 and he slowly became the face of the emerging porn scene in the 1970s. Since the next season deals with the incidents in the adult movie industry from the 1980s, it only seems like an obvious choice to bring back Wasserman. After all, in the last season, Wasserman and Candy's 'Red Hot' was seen as a pioneer for women-centric adult films.
Sauli will reprise his role as Tommy Longo, Rudy Pipolo's right-hand man. The power struggle between the crime families in season 2 had left the mob boss on top and we know he never goes anywhere without Tommy by his side. There's also a possibility that Tommy may just stir up his own crime scene next season, overtaking Rudy and the rest of the Gambinos.
Moafi will come back as Loretta, a prostitute who was seen working for Larry Brown in season one. Her character didn't have a lot of growth in the season and that will hopefully change now that she's been upped to series regular. Since Brown wanted to quit pimping altogether by the end of season 2, the upcoming season will, perhaps, explore the repercussions of his exit.
Luccardi's character, similar to Moafi will be coming back as Melissa, a prostitute who used to work for Reggie Love. She worked on 42nd Street in New York in the first season and then went on to look for a job at Vinny Martino's parlor in the second. The third season will hopefully give us more insight into the character as we've only seen her in passing now and then.
The next season of 'The Deuce' is expected to premiere sometime in September 2019.
