Both Sanaa Lathan and Jonathan Groff have been added to the second Season cast list of drama series Boss.
Deadline reports that both Lathan and Groff will have regular roles in the Kelsey Grammer starring show, Boss. Grammer won a Golden Globe last month for his lead role in the show which centres on the mayor of Chicago, Tom Kane. Kane is diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder that he conceals from his family and friends. Gladiator actress Connie Nielsen plays Kane's wife Meredith and Martin Donovan (Weeds, The Dead Zone) plays his advisor Ezra Stone who begins to suspect that something is wrong with the mayor.
Lathan is the voice of Donna Tubbs on The Cleveland Show and Groff is best known for his recurring role as Jesse St. James in Glee. Both have acted on the London stage in recent years with Lathan opposite James Earl Jones and Adrian Lester (Hustle), in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Groff in Deathtrap with Simon Russell Beale (Spooks, Henry IV).
Groff's role in Boss is to be Ian Todd, a staffer in Kane's office and Lathan will play Mona, his new chief of staff.
