“Mad Men” and The Quiet Ones star Jared Harris, pictured, has nabbed a lead role in MGM and Fox 2000′s Poltergeist remake, Deadline writes.

Harris will play Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality who left the world of academia behind to become the star host of basic cable TV show Haunted House Cleaners.

Gil Kenan is directing from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire reimagining the 1982 Tobe Hooper horror classic.

Rosemarie DeWitt was cast in the pic in July.

    rebooting this flick is a scary proposition….very few have been done well and Poltergeist was too good to screw up now..i hope this is in capable hands and done with the respect it deserves..

    Reminds me of the new fright night remake. Hopefully Poltergeist is better…
