“24” vet Leslie Hope has succumbed to “The Strain,” FX’s Guillermo del Toro-helmed drama pilot, TVLine writes.
From Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) and Del Toro (Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), the high-concept thriller stars Corey Stoll (“House of Cards”) as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of a Center for Disease Control team in New York City. Unexpectedly, the group is tasked with investigating a mysterious viral outbreak with the hallmarks of an ancient, evil strain of vampirism.
Hope, whose recent TV credits include NBC’s “Revolution” and ABC’s short-lived “The River”, will play Joan Luss, one of the few survivors of the outbreak. If the project lands a series order — a fait accompli, for all intents and purposes — Hope’s character would recur.
