When We Rise - Further Casting Announced

While we're still a bit off this seven part miniseries from Dustin Lance Black and Gus Van Sant from airing on ABC, more casting news has surfaced for the upcoming, When We Rise.

Kevin McHale, best known for his role as Artie Abrams in six seasons of musical drama Glee and for presenting E4 show, Virtually Famous will be taking on the recurring role of AIDS activist, Bobbi Campbell. However, McHale isn't the only former actor from a Ryan Murphy show that will appear in this miniseries.

Dylan Walsh, best known for his roles in both Nip/Tuck and Unforgettable has also scored a recurring role in the miniseries. Walsh will take on the role of Dr. Marcus Conant, a role based on leading American dermatologist Conant, a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of AIDS.

Also confirmed for a role in the miniseries, via his own Twitter and Instagram accounts is Rafael De La Fuente. The Empire hunk posted a script page where it appears he'll be playing a character named Ricardo but whether the character is a regular or recurring, I'm not yet sure. I'll post more spoiler information as it becomes available.
