Michael Rapaport has joined the cast of Hulu’s original comedy series Life & Beth. Rapaport will be a series regular and star alongside Amy Schumer and Michael Cera.
In Life & Beth, Beth’s life looks pretty great on paper. Impressive to everyone she grew up with. She makes a good living as a wine distributor. She’s in a long-term relationship with an attractive, successful guy and lives in Manhattan. When a sudden incident forces Beth to engage with her past, her life changes forever. Through flashbacks to her teen self, Beth starts to learn how she became who she is and who she wants to become. We’ll go on her journey toward building a more authentic life. Learning to express herself and living in an intentional way. A trip down memory lane is a strong source of trauma, comedy and moving forward.
Rapaport will play Leonard, teenage Beth’s father who’s down on his luck.
