Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s Jonathan Tucker, above, has been cast in Bryan Fuller’s 90-minute Syfy pilot “High Moon,” which explores what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the moon’s resources and discover a new form of life, says Deadline.

Tucker will play Stanislav “Stan” Stavin, a handsome and outgoing miner for the Russians who may be hiding something. He also recurs on Parenthood.

Charity Wakefield (The Raven, “Mockingbird Lane”) has signed on for a guest-starring role in the pilot, written by Jim Danger Gray based on John Christopher’s novel The Lotus Caves.

Wakefield will play the smart and savvy Eve St. John-Smythe, CEO of the world’s most profitable corporation that is responsible for opening up the moon by providing oxygen to the various countries there.
