On TV, she most recently starred in Weird Loners and had recurring roles in shows like Divorce and Tell Me A Story. In an interview with Newton on Buzzfeed, she talked about her career working on TV, saying: “I think so much of TV is happenstance,” Newton added. “The things that are hits often aren’t the things you expected or were promoted to be hits … [Ugly Betty] didn’t have ‘hit’ written all over it from the beginning.” Given the star-studded cast of The Lincoln Lawyer backed by an excellent creator, chances of the show becoming a hit are on her side.
Jazz Raycole will be portraying Izzy in The Lincoln Lawyer. Raycole is an actress and dancer best known for her role in the hit sitcom My Wife and Kids, portraying Claire Kyle during its first season. A familiar face on TV, Raycole has appeared on shows like The Soul Man, Suburgatory, Vanity, The Quad, I Ship It, and most recently, Council of Dads. In an interview with PS Love Charli, Raycole talked about how she became an actress: “Well I did this workshop where I got found by all of these agents and managers, and I’m like “Whoa! Let’s try this!” And I was a kid, must have been around 4 or 5. I started off with commercials and then my first movie of course was Waiting to Exhale. Then I kept working pretty consistently. That’s when I knew I wanted to be an actress; when I was about 15. I did this episode of Law and Order. At that point I was a kid, I was a kid actor. It was a lot of sitcom stuff, a lot of guest star stuff. So I got this opportunity to do Law and Order, a dramatic role, and I wasn’t sure if I could act at that level. And I ended up looking at it and decided that that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”
Angus Sampson is set to play Cisco in the upcoming series The Lincoln Lawyer. Sampson is best known for starring in the Insidious film series. He also appeared in the crime drama movie The Mule.

In an interview with Brief Take, Gorham talked about enjoying being on Netflix when he starred in Insatiable, saying: “We’re so grateful that we’re on Netflix because I don’t know if the show could exist as it is anywhere else. It’s fun, it’s campy, it’s bright, and I think that on any other network…I don’t think that any other network would have been as brave as Netflix would be to allow this show to be what it is and to be what Lauren Gussis wanted it to be. We are very grateful.”
