Los Angeles: Actors Winona Ryder, Jon Bernthal and Alfred Molina are joining the cast of director David Simon`s HBO miniseries `Show Me a Hero`.
The miniseries explores a racial conflict that explodes in Yonkers, NY when Mayor Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Isaac) carries out a court order to build low-income houses in a white neighbourhood, reportedly.
Ryder has been cast as Wasicsko`s confidant Vinni Restiano, who leads the town`s City Council. Bernthal - best known for playing Shane Walsh in `The Walking Dead` - will play a Harvard-educated lawyer who heads the NAACP`s anti-segregation efforts.
Their political opponent will be former NYPD detective Hank Spallone (Molina), who uses his own council seat to lead the charge against construction.
Catherine Keener, Jim Belushi, Terry Kinney and Michael Stahl-David have all previously been cast in the HBO miniseries.
`Show Me a Hero` is scheduled to premiere next year.
