In the Notorious episode ‘Friends and Other Strangers’, TV news producer Julia (Piper Perabo) takes a big risk. When a beloved rock star/humanitarian falls into a coma, Julia airs a tape of him taking advantage of a woman backstage at one of his concerts. Julia’s frenemy attorney Jake (Daniel Sunjata) represents the woman who distributed the tape, Rhonda Cole.
Rhonda Cole is portrayed by Toks Olagundoye. She’s known for her roles on Castle (former Scotland Yards officer Hayley Shipton) and The Neighbors (Jackie Joyner-Kersee). Olagundoye is also recognized for her role as Sidney’s assistant in the 2002 film Brown Sugar with Taye Diggs. Notorious airs Thursdays at 9pm on ABC.
