Lee Sung Jin Eyes Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Charles Melton, and Cailee Spaeny For Beef Season 2

BEEF creator Lee Sung Jin is supposedly looking to cast Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Charles Melton and Cailee Spaeny for the award-winning show’s second season.

The Dish hears that he is circling cast for a second season of the Netflix and A24 show, and he’s got some beefcake thesps circling.

We hear that the storyline this time will revolve around two feuding couples. May December revelation Charles Melton and Cailee Spaeny, a revelation in Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, are being courted to play one of the couples. Jake Gyllenhaaland Anne Hathaway are the other names we hear. The latter meshed nicely in the Ed Zwick-directed Love & Other Drugs.

Admittedly, this is early, and no deals are in place, but we understand that a limited season’s worth of scripts were just turned in or are about to be and that Netflix and A24 are ready to get the second season into production by late summer or fall. Word of all this was circulating in chatter at the weekend’s award shows — Beef won at both the Spirits and the Producers Guild Awards.

Beef has been picking up awards left and right, including eight Primetime Emmys, one for Outstanding Limited Series or Anthology Series, and trophies for Ali Wong and Steven Yuen, and Jin for writing and directing. It also has scored many other accolades this awards season, including Golden Globes.

I absolutely loved the first season of Beef. I wondered what they were planning for season 2 since it was a successful series for Netflix, and it cleaned up at all the award shows. So now we know they're doing Beef in anthology form, like White Lotus.
