Griffiths, who most recently appeared in Underground: The Julian Assange Story, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars and Camp, will play newcomer Belle who will ruffle feathers within one of the most solid relationships in the series.
“I am really excited. It is a bunch of old friends, so I think we will have a little bit of fun in the playground. I think I did my first professional job with Gary Sweet, an episode of Police Rescue in the early 1990s,” Griffiths said.
Nine’s Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said, “Rachel Griffiths brings Hollywood star power to the already impressive House Husbands lineup. We feel very privileged to be working with such a talented cast.”
Executive Producers David Maher and David Taylor added: “Rachel will certainly add a sparkling dimension to what is shaping up to be our most outstanding series of House Husbands. We are delighted to welcome her to our family.”
Series Three will air later this year.
