In the Billions episode “Hell of a Ride,” Connerty’s (Toby Leonard Moore) scrutiny of Chuck (Paul Giamatti) intensifies as Chuck tries to reconcile with his father, millionaire real estate mogul Chuck Rhoades, Sr. But it’s not easy. Connerty is now aware of Chuck Sr.’s involvement, which means Chuck is facing “a real and unsolvable problem.” Chuck admits to his father, “I should have known better.” Is it too late to protect his father? Should he? [Some Reddit fans compare Chuck Rhoades, Sr. to Fred Trump, the late father of President Donald Trump.]
Chuck Rhoades, Sr. is portrayed by Jeffrey DeMunn. The Shakespearean actor is known for his TV roles on Showtime’s Divorce (Max Brodkin), Mob City (Hal Morrison), The Walking Dead (Dale Horvath), and Law & Order (Professor Norman Rothenberg), among others. DeMunn is also recognized for his roles in the films The Green Mile (Harry Terwilliger), The Hitcher (Captain Esteridge), Frances with Jessica Lange (Clifford Odets), and Ragtime with James Cagney (DeMunn played Houdini!), among others. Billions airs Sundays at 10pm on Showtime.
