Rick Fox has signed on for a recurring role on the second season ofGreenleaf, OWN’s drama series, executive produced by Oprah Winfrey.
Rick Fox is set to play Darius Fox. The character is a reporter in Memphis. The handsome reporter covers the latest round of scandals at Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, with a liking to sandbagging high church officials in the parking lot, hoping to pressure them into blurting out something memorable.
The show takes place against the backdrop of a Memphis megachurch, the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge), who has now returned home after 20 years due to the mysterious death of her sister, Faith. As she re-enters the world of Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, the Memphis megachurch run by her powerful parents Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield), it quickly becomes clear that things are definitely not as virtuous as they seem and that the family’s outward display of faith is a cover up for an array of sins.
Fox, is not new to acting. He has appeared in movies including Dope and Meet The Browns. Fox recently recurred on K.C. Undercover, Shoot The Messenger and Hit The Floor, and guest-starred on Shameless and iZombie.
Production on the second season is currently underway in Atlanta for premiere in spring 2017. Greenleaf is produced for OWN by Lionsgate in association with Harpo Films and Pine City.
