Based on the book series by Joe R. Lansdale, "Hap and Leonard" follows two lifelong best friends -- Hap Collins (James Purefoy) and Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams) – as they find themselves in mucho-trouble, caught in the middle of a murder mystery with more twists and turns than an East Texas highway. The story begins with a skeleton, Trudy’s missing ashes, a literal pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer, and a piece of MeMaw’s famous pie. When Leonard is arrested for a murder he didn’t commit, Hap and attorney Florida Grange must work to clear his name. The only things standing in their way are Hap’s unquenchable thirst for Florida; a serial killer; bad mojo; and themselves.
Joining the cast as recurring guest stars for season two are Golden Globe and Tony® award winner and six-time Emmy® Nominee, Brian Dennehy (“Death of a Salesman,” “First Blood”) and Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize winner, Irma P. Hall (“A Family Thing,” “Soul Food,” “The Ladykillers”). Dennehy plays Valentine Otis, a Sherriff and all-around boss-hog in Marvel Creek.
Also joining the cast is Dohn Norwood (“All the Way,” “Hell on Wheels”) as a recurring guest star, and Tiffany Mack (Wicked Love, “Timeless”, “iZombie”) and Cranston Johnson (“Atlanta,” Find a Way) as series regulars.
