Tom Pelphrey is sticking around the Netflix universe. The former Guiding Light and As the World Turns star has signed on for the third season of Netflix's Ozark. Pelphrey previously acted on the video streaming service's now defunct Marvel drama Iron Fist.

In Ozark, the series follows Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman), a financial planner who uproots his family from Chicago to a summer resort town in the Missouri Ozarks. They go to launder $500 million in the span of five years for a Mexican drug lord after a laundering scheme goes wrong.

According to Deadline, Pelphrey will play Ben Davis, the brother of Marty's wife Wendy (Laura Linney) who drops in unannounced and at the most inconvenient time. Ben is very fickle and and erratic, but is very swift to let Wendy know who she was before and what she was escaping.

Look for the third season to drop later this year.
