Jerry Ferrara Lands Role in Eastwood’s ‘Sully,’ Will Return to Starz’s ‘Power’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Looking to keep his film and television slate filled, “Entourage” star Jerry Ferrara has not only signed up to return for seasons three and four of the Starz drama “Power” but has also landed a key role in Clint Eastwood’s “Sully.”

Ferrara joined “Power” this season in a recurring role as attorney Joe Proctor. His turn was so well received by fans that producers decided to have Ferrara return as Proctor over the next two seasons.

The show, which stars Omari Hardwick as a New York City nightclub owner who doubles as a drug kingpin for an elite clientele, recently became the network’s most popular show, drawing 2.39 million viewers in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates.

As for “Sully,” details about his role remain unknown. Based on the book by Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow, the biopic follows Sullenberger as he becomes a national hero after his plane began to malfunction shortly after takeoff and he was forced to take drastic measures in order to save the passengers.

Tom Hanks stars as Sullenberger along with Laura Linney and Aaron Eckhart. Eastwood is directing with Frank Marshall producing.

Ferrara has always wanted to act for Eastwood. He read for parts in “Jersey Boys” and “American Sniper,” but neither panned out for him. Though he had missed out on past Eastwood pics, the director had always liked Ferrara and hoped to find a part for him.

Besides the most recent season of “Power,” Ferrara was most recently seen in Warner Bros.’ “Entourage” movie. He is also developing an untitled biopic on legendary boxer Arturo Gatti.

He is repped by WME, Leverage Management and Ziffren Brittenham.
