The cast

James Woods stars as a ruthless and inventive lawyer whose willingness to use every trick in the book has bought him a predatory nickname in this new legal drama…

Sebastian Stark is a charismatic, self-confident defence attorney who, following the tragic outcome of one of his cases, decides to bring his cuthroat tactics to the prosecutor’s office as head of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s High Profile Crime Unit. Forced to work for his former nemesis Jessica Devlin, a DA who despises the underhand methods that prompted his colleagues to nickname him Shark, Stark refuses to change the way he approaches a case just because he’s switched sides.

Although he’s made many TV appearances, it took a role like Sebastian Stark to entice James Woods into doing a series. “I had always said I didn’t want to, and not because I was a snob about television. I just didn’t want to play the same character again and again, because I thought it would be hard to imagine how he could evolve. But because of the very important secondary story in Shark, which is my relationship with Danielle Panabaker, who plays my 16-year-old daughter who chooses to have custody with me, this character will really evolve a lot, and also because of the changing face of justice. This show works on a very visceral level, which I like. I don’t think there’s a person in this country who didn’t get a kick in the gut by the OJ Simpson verdict, or by the Robert Blake verdict. These big dream team cases have a very visceral effect.
