Schiff won an Emmy Award for playing Toby Zeigler on the hit NBC television drama “The West Wing,” and will make his Broadway debut in the role of George Aaronow. Shamos received a 2012 Tony Award nomination for his role in Clybourne Park and will be playing James Lingk.

About the cast additions:

DAVID HARBOUR has gained a reputation as a performer facile in film and television as he is on stage, a medium in which he was nominated for a 2005 Tony Award for the role of Nick in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.  He is perhaps best known to film audiences for his role as Shep Campbell in the romantic period drama Revolutionary Road, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Audiences can soon see him opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Kendrick in End of Watch, in Knife Fight with Rob Lowe and in Between Us where he reprises the role of Joel, which he played in the off-Broadway production of the play. Other film credits include Thin Ice, Kinsey, Brokeback Mountain, The Green Hornet, W.E., The Wedding Weekend, Quantum of Solace and State of Play.  Television credits include Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" (recurring), "Pan Am'" (recurring), "Lie To Me" and "Law & Order" (all three). A New York native, Harbour graduated from Byram Hills High School in Armonk, New York, just north of New York City.  In 1997 he graduated from Dartmouth College with a double-major in drama and Italian.  He soon impressed theatrical critics and audiences alike, appearing in Lanford Wilson’s Fifth of July and in such Broadway productions as The Merchant of Venice opposite Al Pacino, Tom Stoppard’s The Invention Of Love and The Coast of Utopia at Lincoln Center Theater.

RICHARD SCHIFF began his acting career doing experimental works in New York’s downtown theater district and independent films. He has since appeared in over fifty films, including Ray, The Lost World, I Am Sam, Deep Impact, City Hall, Seven, Dr. Doolittle, Malcolm X, Forces of Nature, Crazy in Alabama and Hoffa. Recent film credits include Infidel, a religious comedy from the U.K., Another Harvest Moon and Solitary Man. Schiff's upcoming films include Fire with Fire, opposite Bruce Willis, the independent features: Knife Fight with Rob Lowe and Decoding Annie Parker with Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton, and Man of Steel, Warner Bros. highly anticipated new Superman film, directed by Zach Snyder. Schiff's television roles include “The West Wing” in a celebrated portrayal of Communications Director Toby Ziegler that earned him an Emmy® Award and three nominations, and two SAG® Awards and four nominations. He has starred or guest-starred in dozens of TV series and TV movies, and his most recent credits include the TNT film Innocent and recurring roles on hit shows “Once Upon A Time,” “NCIS” and Showtime's “House of Lies.” He has recently revisited his theater roots playing the highly acclaimed one-man show Underneath the Lintel in London’s West End and starring in Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Talley’s Folley at the McCarter Theatre. Schiff also recently starred in a production of Smash at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. Schiff has an Ovation Theater Award and a Dramalogue Award.
