Two years after his guest role in "Damages," Ryan Phillippe is in final negotiations to return to TV for ABC's ten-episode drama "Secrets & Lies".
Phillippe will take on a role which Martin Henderson plays in the upcoming Australian series on which this U.S. version is based.
The actor will play Ben Garner, a family man and house painter who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of the 4-year-old boy of his neighbor whose body he finds whilst out jogging.
Barbie Kligman ("Vampire Diaries," "CSI: NY") is serving as show runner on the series which will be shot in Wilmington, North Carolina.
