His casting marks a reunion with “Murder in the First” co-creator Steven Bochco, as they worked together on “Blind Justice,” which was Bochco’s short-lived “NYPD Blue” follow-up that ran one season on ABC in 2005.
In the upcoming season of “Murder in the First,” Gaston will play Fred Arkin, a warm family man who is a DUI defense attorney in a high-profile case.
Most recently seen in the Oscar pic “Bridge of Spies,” Gaston had a large arc in NBC’s “Blindspot,” HBO’s first season of “The Leftovers” and Amazon’s “Man in the High Castle.” He’s also had guests spots on “The Good Wife,” “Bones,” “Law & Order: SVU” and “Chicago P.D.”
“Murder in the First” stars Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson. Season three is slated to premiere this summer.
Gaston is repped by APA and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management.
