CBS’ Made in Jersey legal drama is bringing in a Ringer.
Kristoffer Polaha, who played Henry opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar on The CW’s one-and-done mystery series, is now a series regular on the upcoming CBS freshman, TVLine has learned.
Made in Jersey follows Martina Garretti (played by Human Target’s Janet Montgomery), a working-class Garden State gal who holds her own among the snooty lawyers at Stark & Rowan, a New York law firm. Kyle MacLachlan (Desperate Housewives) and Donna Murphy (Hack) co-star.
Polaha will play Nolan, a handsome, charming third-year associate at the firm. Though Nolan came of age against a backdrop of private schools and wild getaways in the Hamptons, his dad’s squandering of the family fortune means he doesn’t have much in the bank. Nevertheless, Nolan’s a well-established member of the Manhattan elite.
Before Ringer, Polaha portrayed slacker dad Nate on The CW’s Life Unexpected. His TV credits also include Mad Men, The CW’s Valentine and Judy Greer’s Miss Guided.
Jersey will run Fridays at 9/8c in the fall, hammocked by CSI: NY and Blue Bloods.
