Showrunner Carlton Cuse tonight tweeted casting of “Lord Of The Rings” veteran Sean Astin in the FX pilot “The Strain,” directed by Guillermo del Toro, Deadline reports.
Details are sketchy about which character Astin will play in the high-concept thriller starring Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro and John Hurt.
“The Strain,” which Pacific Rim helmer del Toro co-wrote with Chuck Hogan based on their vampire novel trilogy, “tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.“
