The Briggs are getting bigger.
EW has exclusively learned that ABC’s high-stakes Blood & Oil has added Lolita Davidovich to the cast in the role of Annie Briggs, who will pump up trouble when she arrives in Rock Springs. She’s the ex-wife of oil tycoon Hap Briggs (Don Johnson) and is essentially the female version of her sometimes devilish, sometimes charming ex-husband.
Annie is described as cunning and charismatic, a woman “who has enthralled royalty and decimated boardrooms” and whose attraction to her ex-husband clashes with her desire to bring him down. (Plus, there’s absolutely no way Annie won’t butt heads with Hap’s current wife, Carla.)

Davidovich (Raising Cain, True Detective, The L Word) will be introduced in a November sweeps episode.
The second episode of ABC’s Blood & Oil just onboarded a handful of new characters in and around the vicinity of the Briggs family, including Hap’s put-together daughter Lacey (Miranda Rae Mayo) and her duplicitous driver AJ (Adan Canto).
Blood & Oil airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
