Joshua Jackson is returning to TV once again, this time as the jilted husband on The Affair.
The Fringe star completes the complicated four-sided love affair as Cole, the owner of a ranch on the eastern tip of Long Island. A hard worker, Cole is married to Allison, played by Luther’s Ruth Wilson, but their marriage is already tense due to a tragedy in their past. Their marriage will be tested even further when Allison begins, you guessed it, an affair.
Her lover is Noah, played by the always charming Dominic West. A New York schoolteacher vacationing for the summer on Long Island, Noah is a father of four and husband to Helen (Maura Tierney). The college sweethearts have been married for 17 years, which only adds to Helen’s fury and confusion over her husband’s sudden tryst, especially when Noah starts to think Allison may be his soul mate.
Showtime’s The Affair examines marriage, relationships, infidelity and families as both couples struggle to deal with the consequences of the affair between Allison and Noah.
Jackson was last seen on the Fox’s sci-fi/drama/mystery, Fringe, which concluded its fifth and final season in January.
