Olivier Martinez Books 'Revenge' Role as Margaux's Father


Halle Berry isn't the only major star heading to the small screen. According to Deadline, so is Berry's man, Olivier Martinez.

The 'Unfaithful' actor is heading to ABC's 'Revenge,' where he'll play Margaux LeMarchal's (Karine Vanasse) father, Pascal LeMarchal. Like Margaux, he's a familiar face in the media world, but, unlike his daughter, he's considered a top dog in publishing. He's also described as a "cutthroat businessman."

Margaux has dropped hints of her father -- the two don't seem to get along, and she's also trying to avoid him -- who happens to have a competitive history with Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny).

Pascal's connection to the devious Grayson family doesn't end there, as he also has quite the complicated past with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe). Does this really surprise any of us? Victoria is connected to anyone and everyone, especially when it comes to attractive men.

This exciting news comes just days after Vanasse was promoted to a series regular for Season 4 of the Hamptons-based show revolving around lies, murder, love, and, clearly, revenge.

The series, starring Emily VanCamp as leading lady Emily Thorne, has yet to be renewed, but that hasn't stopped the show from bringing on regulars for a potential fourth season (a new season is said to be determined in May).

'Revenge' airs Sundays at 9/8c on ABC, and it will begin airing at 10/9c come Sunday, March 9.
