Stephen Sommers continues to fill out the cast of Odd Thomas, as Gugu Mbatha-Raw (pictured inside) has been tapped for a supporting role in the supernatural thriller based on Dean Koontz’s bestselling novel, reports Variety.
Anton Yelchin stars as the titular hero, a clairvoyant short-order cook who encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark forces. “Californication” star Addison Timlin will play the protag’s girlfriend, while Mbatha-Raw will play her best friend, Viola, a waitress who raises two young girls after their junkie mother dies.
Comedian Patton Oswalt recently joined the cast as an eccentric artist. Scream 4 star Nico Tortorella and Willem Dafoe are also still in talks to join the cast, with the latter playing a local sheriff.
