During the second series of Franklin & Bash, he guest-starred as a senior partner of the Infeld Daniels New York office, investigating Franklin and Bash because of a complaint filed against them by a former client. He had a minor guest star role in a season 3 episode of The Good Wife, playing the defendant's lawyer in a lawsuit against Lockhart and Gardner, and in a two episode story arc on BBC One's Ripper Street.

The actor: David Constable, 54, has been a television mainstay for the better part of 15 years; his most memorable roles include the unctuous newspaper editor Thomas Klebanow in the fifth season of The Wire and the ill-fated chemist (and karaoke enthusiast) Gale Boetticher in Breaking Bad (and occasionally its prequel, Better Call Saul). He previously collaborated with Billions co-creators and showrunners David Levien and Brian Koppelman — the latter is a friend from college — on their 2009 film Solitary Man.

But as Meyer noted of Costabile’s performance, there are layers to almost everything Wags does. That “Fire walk with me” moment? It came in the midst of the season two arc in which his high-rolling (emphasis on high) lifestyle finally takes a toll on his body and mind. He pulls himself up before hitting rock bottom — or, worse for him, rehab. (Costabile says the concurrent sleep deprivation from parenting a newborn helped him portray a character running on fumes: “I look like I’m a guy who has nothing left in the tank and is still going.”) The following season, Wags fights tooth and nail to secure a highly sought-after grave plot (no, seriously) and ends the episode in question lying face-up in a cemetery, contemplating his legacy.
