NEW YORK, NY (February 29, 2012) - Emmy and Golden Globe(R) award-winning actor Beau Bridges and Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale have joined the SHOWTIME drama pilot MASTERS OF SEX.

His television credits include "Brothers & Sisters," "Stargate: SG-1," "My Name is Earl," "White Collar," "The Closer," "Desperate Housewives," "Stargate: Atlantis," "The Agency," and the mini-series and movies "Into The West," "10.5: Apocalypse," "The Second Civil War," "Without Warning: The James Brady Story," "Hidden in America," "Kissinger and Nixon," and "Out of the Ashes" on SHOWTIME. His film credits include "The Fabulous Baker Boys," "The Descendants," "Norma Rae," "The Good German," "Spinning Into Butter," "Jerry Maguire," "Charlotte's Web" and "The Ballad of Jack and Rose."

Her film credits include "Million Dollar Baby," "Dead Man Walking," "Nobody's Fool," "Lorenzo's Oil," "The Hours," "Secretariat," "Paris, je t'aime" and "Win Win," among others.
