Barry – Episode #7: “Chapter Seven: ‘Loud, Fast, and Keep Going’” Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 6 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) After a deadly shootout at the airstrip, Barry (Bill Hader) must make a difficult decision to evade capture. Pazar (Glenn Fleshler) blames Fuches (Stephen Root) for convincing him to declare war on Cristobal Sifuentes (Michael Irby), a ruthless yet civilized Bolivian drug lord. Sally (Sarah Goldberg) fears her performance in the class production of “Macbeth” will be compromised, ruining her chance to impress another top Hollywood agent. Written by Liz Sarnoff; directed by Alec Berg. BARRY Season 1 Episode 7 Photos Loud, Fast And Keep Going.

Barry is a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. While on a job in LA, he follows his “mark” into an acting class and is instantly drawn to the group of students. Barry wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away. Can he find a way to balance the two worlds?

Other cast regulars include: Stephen Root (“Get Out”) as Barry’s handler, who is alarmed to contemplate a future without his primary source of income; Sarah Goldberg (“Hindsight”) as a dedicated acting student who becomes the object of Barry’s affection; Glenn Fleshler (HBO’s “True Detective”) a Chechen mob kingpin whose killer instincts are (somewhat) tempered by a surprisingly sentimental side; Anthony Carrigan (“Gotham”) as the mobster’s brutal but unfailingly polite sidekick; and Henry Winkler (“Arrested Development”) as a pompous yet endearing acting teacher who takes Barry under his wing.

As well as starring in the series, Hader directs episodes of the show, marking his directorial debut.
