Nick Stahl has a lot of momentum these day, and I’m not sure why. I wasn’t a fan of him in Terminator 3, Mirrors 2, Dead Awake or Sin City, but yet he’s been landing some pretty big roles. While he was recently added to the cast of 388 Arletta Avenue, Deadline is reporting he’s landed a lead role in Twentieth Century Fox’s Locke & Key pilot, the live-action adaptation of Joe Hill’s brilliant comic series directed by Mark Romanek. It tells the story of Nina Locke (Miranda Otto) and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey (Sarah Bolger), and Bode who, after the brutal murder of Nina’s husband Rendell Locke, return to Keyhouse, his old family home in Massachusettes. There, they are pestered by an evil entity named DODGE that’s determined to hold the family hostage one way or another until it gets what it wants. Stahl will play Rendell’s younger brother Duncan Locke, an art teacher, who lives nearby and frequently visits Nina and the kids and who strangely has few memories of his time growing up in Keyhouse.
