‘Ted Lasso’ Star Brett Goldstein to Join Cast of ‘Shrinking’ Season 2

Popular face and co-creator of the phenomenal series, Ted Lasso, Brett Goldstein is confirmed to guest star in season two of the Apple TV+ series, Shrinking. The multitalented creative, known for innovatively contributing behind-the-scenes as well as on-camera in Emmy-winning shows, will be playing a character whose details are, for now, guarded as if they are safely locked away in a therapist’s desk.

Brett Goldstein in Shrinking Season Two

While Brett Goldstein took the reins of the character, Roy Kent, in Ted Lasso, soon after its inception, his role for the new season of Shrinking remains undisclosed. The series, co-created by Goldstein, Bill Lawrence, and Jason Segel, follows the offbeat journey of a grieving therapist named Jimmy, played by Segel himself.

About Shrinking

Shrinking intricately sketches the character of Jimmy, who dares to deviate from conventional therapy methods and starts candidly telling his clients what he thinks. This radical approach was triggered by a personal tragedy – Jimmy’s wife’s demise. The show’s premise orbits around how Jimmy, in his experimental therapeutic phase, manages his loss and its impact on his patients.

Brett Goldstein’s Journey from Creator to Actor

Goldstein began his journey on the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso as a writer, but eventually saw himself as the perfect fit for the character Roy Kent. Following his pitch to the writers and assuming the role, Goldstein went on to win two consecutive Emmys. However, he has primarily served as a co-creator and executive producer for Shrinking, his guest appearance in the show marking his return to acting on Apple TV+.

In a candid conversation, the award-winning actor confessed that he didn’t initially feel an urge to act in Shrinking, stating that he was content with writing for the characters. He also discussed the nexus between acting and writing, believing that both require relatability and imagination, albeit in different scenarios.

The Way Forward for Shrinking

The production for the second season of Shrinking is presently underway. The forthcoming edition will also feature notable actors like Harrison Ford, Christa Miller, Lukita Maxwell, Michael Urie, and Luke Tennie. Notably, Ford’s involvement with the series marks one of his first regular roles in a TV series.
