“Southland” alumna Regina King, pictured, is set to recur on FX‘s new drama series “The Strain,” from Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse, Deadline reports.
“The Strain” is a high-concept thriller that “tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called on to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.”
King will play Ruby Wain, the smart and accomplished manager of philandering rock star Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy).
Also cast as a recurring on the series is Melanie Merkosky as Jim Kent’s (Sean Astin) wife Sylvia, who is suffering from cancer.
