Ron Livingston is one busy guy! Not only is he returning for a second season in the title tole of
AT&T AUDIENCE Network's brash comedy series Loudermilk, but he also plays a pivotal role in the new hit series on ABC, A Million Little Things. If that’s not enough he will also be see on an episode of The Romanoffs titled “Bright and High Circle,” which streams Nov. 2 on Amazon.
Loudermilk is AT&T AUDIENCE Network's scripted half-hour comedy series from Peter Farrelly. Livingston portrays Sam Loudermilk, a recovering alcoholic and substance abuse counsellor with a bad attitude who manages to piss off everyone. Although his drinking is under control, he discovers that when your life is a complete mess, getting clean is the easy part.
After a pretty zany first season that ended with Loudermilk discovering that his best-friend, roommate, and sober-sponsor Ben (Will Sasso) was marrying Loudermilk’s ex-wife and a predictable knee-jerk sober relapse in response, Season 2 picks up with Loudermilk searching for another way to re-establish his grasp on sobriety after having everything he thought he could count on was ripped away.
The new series, A Million Little Things, follows a group of friends from Boston who become even closer when one of them tragically takes their own life. The show explores the crew’s highs and lows in their careers and relationships as they come to terms with the death of one of their own. A Million Little Things is about friendship at its core and is already drawing comparisons in the crying department to NBC’s hit show, This Is Us.
Ron Livingston is known for his varied television & movie roles. From his portrayal of "Capt. Lewis Nixon" in the miniseries Band of Brothers to a memorable turn as “Jack Berger” on HBO’s Sex and the City, and notable roles in the films Swingers, Adaptation, Office Space, The Cooler, and The Conjuring. He currently co-stars in ABC’s A Million Little Things, and recently appeared in Jason Reitman’s Tully, the crime thriller Shimmer Lake, and the film Lucky, with David Lynch.
