Camyrn Manheim, Daisha Graf and Dale Whibley have all landed recurring roles on David E. Kelley’s “Big Shot” series for Disney+.
Manheim will play Coach McCarthy, Coach Korn’s (John Stamos) rival. She is most known for her Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning role on The Practice. She most recently starred on ABC’s Stumptown.
Whibley will portray Lucas, Louise’s (Nell Verlaque) brother. He had a recurring role on Degrassi, and recently had a lead role on the comedy series, Make It Pop.

“Big Shot” follows Coach Korn (John Stamos) who, after getting ousted from the NCAA, is given a chance for redemption with a coaching position at an elite private high school. He soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic coach. By learning how to connect with his players, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court.
The 10-episode series stars John Stamos, Jessalyn Gilsig, Yvette Nicole Brown, Richard Robichaux and features a talented group of young actors including Sophia Mitri Schloss, Nell Verlaque, Tiana Le, Monique Green, Tisha Custodio and Cricket Wampler.
The first three episodes of “Big Shot” are available to stream now on Disney+.
