MICHAEL NOURI IN 'THE SLAP' EIGHT EPISODE MINISERIES

Michael Nouri



Veteran actor Michael Nouri will appear in five of NBC’s upcoming eight-episode miniseries, The Slap, which premieres Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 8:00pm (EST). Based on the book by Christos Tsiolkas and Australian television series of the same name, The Slap is produced by Matchbox Pictures and stars Peter Sarsgaard, Thandie Newton, Uma Thurman, Zachary Quinto, Melissa George, Thomas Sadoski and Brian Cox.



The Slap, which is written and co-produced by Jon Robin Baitz (“Brothers & Sisters’), co-produced by Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (“Gladiator,” “Men in Black”), and directed by Lisa Cholodenko (“The Kids are All Right”), takes an unflinching look at how one little slap can have a huge impact. The show follows Hector, played by Peter Sarsgaard (“Blue Jasmine,” “An Education”), a public servant and father who explodes when his hothead cousin slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. This moment ignites a chain of events that will uncover long-buried secrets within this group of friends and family that vigorously challenge the core values of everyone involved. Nouri, who has enjoyed a successful career spanning film (“The Proposal,” “Finding Forrester,”), television (“Damages,” “CSI: NY”), and theater (“Victor/Victoria” opposite Julie Andrews), will play Thanasis Korkoulis in The Slap, a successful attorney and childhood friend of Brian Cox’s character, Manolis, the patriarch of the family.




On Monday, February 9, 2015, Nouri joined the all-star cast of The Slap who gathered for the New York Premiere Party hosted by NBC and Vanity Fair at The New Museum. On the red carpet, Nouri expressed his excitement for the show’s premiere, saying “the cast and crew have been just sensational to work with […] this has been an incredibly thrilling project to be a part of.”



Nouri’s upcoming feature credits include “The Squeeze” which is being released in April, 2015 in which he also serves as a co-producer, “Teleios,” “The List,” and “Street Level,” in which he co-stars with Danny Trejo. Nouri recently co-starred in the feature film “Taken Away” which aired on Lifetime in Fall 2014.
