The Affair Season 4 Cast
One face we won’t see in The Affair season 4 is that of Jennifer Esposito, who plays Nina, Noah’s sister. She won’t be appearing in the new season, the actress told Huffington Post.
We’ll see plenty of new faces recur on The Affair season 4. According to Deadline, Russell Hornsby will play Carl Gatewood, “Janelle’s (Sanaa Lathan) ex-husband and Noah’s (West) rival for her affection. Carl was a brilliant, promising student in his own day but his experience at an elite university demoralized him and turned him against the system his ex-wife thrived within.”
Playing the son of Gatewood is Christopher Meyer (The Fosters), who joins the cast to play one of Noah’s high school students. According to Deadline, Meyer will play “Anton Gatewood, a defiant but brilliant high school student of Noah (West). Caught between his parents’ expectations, Anton struggles to find his own sense of self amid episodes of self-sabotage and doubt.”
Tim Matheson (Heart of Dixie) and Diana Meyer (Kingdom) will play a couple from Alison’s past, “who have shocking information to share about who she is and where she comes from.”
Allison will also have a new love interest. Ramon Rodriguez of Iron Fist fame will join the cast according to TVLine.
