When he takes a job in Los Angeles, Barry falls in with theater people and finds his tribe, if you will.
Per THR, Winkler co-stars, in Barry, as an inspirational acting instructor, Gene Cousineau. Earlier this month, Hindsight‘s Sarah Goldberg was cast as aspiring actress Sally, who introduces Barry to LA’s theater scene.
