Bradley Whitford Joins 'Handmaid's Tale' for Major Season 2 Role


Whitford will play Commander Joseph Lawrence, the architect of Gilead's economy.

Those who are familiar with Bradley Whitford are aware of how well he can handle humorously aggressive roles, which make him well suited for this job.

Deadline reports that Bradley Whitford- fresh from his success Get Out- has joined the ever-growing cast of The Handmaid's Tale season 2.

The new season will focus on Offred/June's (Elisabeth Moss) pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. In Season 2, Offred and all characters will fight against - or succumb to - this dark truth.

The recall affects an estimated 180,975 trucks in the United States , 42,045 sold in Canada and about 4,066 sold in Mexico. Ram recalls 228,508 trucks over a faulty shifter than may cause the vehicle to move from park unintentionally. .

The Handmaid's Tale features a cast that includes Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel.

Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.

Warren Littlefield, Moss, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, and Ilene Chaiken executive produce alongside Miller.

Season 2 of "The Handmaid's Tale" will premiere with two new episodes on April 25, with subsequent episodes released every Wednesday, on Hulu. Whitford played the freaky patriarch of the Armitage family in Get Out, and no doubt the affable yet spooky vibe he gave off in that film will be utilized in his role as Joseph Lawrence.
