One of the great actors during the big primetime soap era, Knots Landing’s William Devane, has been cast as Edward Grayson on ABC’s Revenge.

According to , “Devane will play the father of Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) and patriarch of the powerful Hamptons clan.”

In story, Edward Grayson is summoned to Southampton by none other than Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), to help in her divorce battle against her estranged husband Conrad. The Grayson divorce storyline will only continue to heat up when the series returns on Jan. 4.  As of right now, Devane is set to appear as Edward Grayson in episodes 14 and 15, which are currently scheduled to air in February.

Of note: Episode 15  is what Revenge viewers have been waiting for where much about the beach murder that launched the series will be revealed.

Devane played Gregory Sumner on Knots Landing for ten years!

    Though this show is on abc, I can’t stay away from it! I LOVE this primetime soap!

    I am glad to see REVENGE get a mention here, Michael. Thank you!

    Good to see Devane back on a series. This is perfect casting!

    The plot lines and characters on REVENGE are excellent and I cannot wait for the next new episode. I advise some of our surviving daytime powers-that-be to take notice. This thoughtful multilayered plot could play out for years.

    This is the only ABC show that I watch besides OLTL and GH. I love me some Bill Devane and this is perfect casting. The writing on this show is spot on as well as the casting.
