Martin Levy is in his 70s or early 80s and is described as a charming, sharp, deep-thinking man with a sense of humor. And, in what has probably not been super fun for Alex her entire life, Martin pulls no emotional punches.

We hear that Papa Levy is slated to be around for roughly six episodes of the show’s upcoming season. Oscar winner Kevin Kline (Dave) was in the mix of A-list actors circling the role, but TVLine hears that he ultimately passed.

Earlier in June, The Morning Show added Oscar winner Marion Cotillard as Celine Dumont, whom the official character description calls “a savvy operator from a storied European family.” More recently, our sister site Variety reported that Julianna Margulies, who played Bradley’s love interest Laura, would not return for Season 4.

The Morning Show‘s Season 4 renewal came in April 2023. Season 3, which aired September through November of 2023, found Elon Musk-like tech giant Paul Marks (played by Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm) poised to buy the financially struggling UBA network. He and Jennifer Aniston’s Alex dated over the course of the season, but she eventually broke up with him after learning that his business practices — such as spying on UBA employees — were not above board. Then, she pitched a potential partnership between UBA and its longtime rival network, NBN.
