Winona Ryder joining HBO’s ‘Show Me a Hero’

Winona Ryder will embark on her “largest TV commitment to date,” joining the Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal and Alfred Molina for the new HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero, created by The Wire‘s David Simon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The six-hour show is based on Lisa Belkin’s eponymous nonfiction book, which was billed as a “A Tale of Murder, Suicide, Race, and Redemption” when it was published in 1999. The protagonist of Show Me A Hero is Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Issac), the mayor of Yonkers, New York in the late 1980s who, to the detriment of his political career, was court-ordered to build 200 units of low-income public housing in a more upscale, whiter side of town. Ryder will play Vinni Restiano, a Yonkers councilwoman who loses her seat after her housing vote.

Ryder also joins actress Catherine Keener, who will portray Mary Dorman, an East Yonkers homeowner who comes to a “remarkable realization” of where to build the units. Bernthal will portray Michael H. Sussman, a top NAACP lawyer and Molina will play councilman Henry J. “Hank” Spallone, an anti-housing advocate and former NYPD detective from the Bronx.
