“The Walking Dead” baddie Jose Pablo Cantillo, pictured above, has joined Neill Blomkamp’s next feature, Chappie, writes THR. The Sony and MRC pic “follows a robot with artificial intelligence who is kidnapped by gangsters planning on using him for nefarious purposes.” Cantillo will play a gangster named Yankie who hopes to use the robot for his own gain. Sony and MRC recently announced that Chappie, which will also star Sharlto Copley as the voice of the robot, has been slated for release on March 27, 2015.
Former James Bond star Timothy Dalton has been cast in Showtime’s upcoming Sam Mendes-John Logan drama “Penny Dreadful,” Variety reported. Dalton will play Sir Malcom, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest. “Penny Dreadful” is billed as “a psychological thriller that blends horror into the drama.” From Logan’s Desert Wolf Prods., the show is set to lens this fall and bow on Showtime next year. Josh Hartnett and Eva Green were also recently cast in the project.
Deadline also writes that Lindsey Kraft, below, will recur on the Fox event series “Wayward Pines,” an intense thriller “about Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon), who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions.” Kraft will play Ethan’s sister-in-law Darla who is a professional tweeter and “life coach”. READ MORE
Season 8 of Showtime’s “Dexter” (aka The Final Season) has just cast Julian Sands (The Killing Fields, Warlock) as “Miles Foster, a wealthy international businessman“, according to TVLine. Let’s face it, he’ll be playing a bad guy and Dexter will kill him. Not a spoiler, just a guess based on the character description and predictability of the show.
UNLESS, all bets are off. It is the Final Season after all, so maybe they break the mold. Maybe he’s in town to offer Dexter some sort of inheritance.
“Dexter” returns June 30 to Showtime (including Yvonne Strahovski reprising her role on the show) followed by the premiere of “Ray Donovan.”
Last week iDigitalTimes reported that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (pictured above; “The Wire”, The Waterboy) was in talks to play the role of “Roy Stark” in AMC’s Season 4 of “The Walking Dead”.
Per THR, it turns out he’s actually playing “Bob Stookey”, “a former Army medic who is deeply haunted by his past — both before and after the apocalypse. He’s a loner, though he maintains a charming yet self-deprecating façade.” Apparently Stookey played a decent-sized role in the comics so fans of the book should be pleased.
We already knew that for October’s return David Morrissey will return as a series regular as The Governor. The British actor initially signed on for a one-season role to play the famed villain from the comics created by Robert Kirkman on which the TV series is based. In the Image/Skybound comics, the Governor fails to survive a brutal showdown at the prison with Rick.
Gilliard will join newly minted regulars (and former recurrings) Chad L. Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green on the show.
Nicholas Hoult (pictured above; Warm Bodies, Jack The Giant Slayer) will be joining the new film from writer/director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), Dark Places, based on the book by Gillian Flynn. He joins Charlize Theron and Chloe Moretz. He’ll play Lyle, “An awkward young man, Lyle is the treasurer of the Kill Club, the group investigating the case of the killing of the family of Libby Day (Theron).”
In the film, “Theron will play Libby Day, a woman who, at seven-years old, survived the brutal massacre of her family and testified against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club, a secret-society obsessed with solving notorious crimes, bring her to question and confront the truth of what took place that day.”
Next up is the remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which adds Addison Timlin (pictured inside; “Californication”) to the cast. Per Deadline, she’ll play, “Jami, a girl who survives a copycat massacre at the film’s annual tribute screening and sets out to solve the mystery of who’s recreating the unsolved Sackhead murders, using clues from her own past.”
Ryan Murphy is producing with Jason Blum. “American Horror Story” director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is handling the reigns. READ MORE
Jolene Purdy (pictured above; “Glee”, Donnie Darko) and Nicholas Strong (“Nashville”) have been cast in “Under The Dome,” CBS’ 13-episode summer series from Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. Per Deadline, “Purdy will play Dodee, a brilliant, eccentric engineer at the local radio station who will draw on her unique skills in an effort to make contact with the world outside the dome. Strong will play Phil, a popular radio DJ and indie rock fanatic, a charismatic figure with a dark secret.”
They join Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford and Alex Koch.
Based on King’s bestselling novel, “On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away.”
“Under The Dome” starts on Monday, June 24 and will air in the Monday 10 PM slot.
Stephen McHattie (pictured above; 300, Watchmen, A History Of Violence) has joined Jason Momoa, Merritt Patterson and Lucas Till in the cast of Wolves, the werewolf thriller from writer/director David Hayter, per Variety.
In the film, “Till will portray an 18-year-old who’s forced to hit the road after the death of his parents and finds his way to an isolated town to hunt down the truth of his ancestry — giving rise to the question of who’s hunting whom.”
Copperheart Entertainment, French financier-sales agent TF1 Intl. and Telefilm Canada will co-finance Wolves. Igor Studios’ Dave Elsey is designing the original creatures for Wolves He created “Beast” for X-Men: First Class, for which he won a Saturn Award.
Wolves starts shooting on Thursday near Toronto.
Amanda Plummer has officially been cast in Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as “Wiress”, according the The Hunger Games Facebook.
Per that site, “Wiress’ eccentricity earns her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes. Though she doesn’t communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable.”
Plummer joins new cast members Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, and Woody Harrelson will return in their roles. The studio signed Francis Lawrence to direct Catching Fire in early May. Lionsgate is planning to shoot the movie starting in the fall for a November 22, 2013 release date.
Suzanne Collins’ “Catching Fire” story features a special edition of the Hunger Games every quarter-century in which tributes are “reaped” from the victors of past games. Slumdog Millionaire screenwriter Simon Beaufoy is crafting the “Fire” script.
Sweet Hereafter director Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three drama Devil’s Knot just keeps casting. The most recent addition is Matt Letscher (pictured inside; Identity, “Scandal”) who will play defense attorney to Jason Baldwin, one of the WM3.
Per Deadline, “ Matt Letscher has joined Devil’s Knot. The actor will play defense attorney Paul Ford in the Atom Egoyan-directed film about the West Memphis 3. Letscher is scheduled to start filming on ‘Devil’s Knot’ early next month.”
The pic is based on investigative reporter Mara Leveritt’s 2002 book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three,” which chronicled the prolonged murder trial of defendants Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr., who served 18 years in prison before being released in August. The trio were accused of killing Christopher Byers, Michael Moore and Stevie Branch, three 8-year-old boys who were found brutally murdered and hog-tied in a wooded area of West Memphis, Arkansas known as Robin Hood Hills.
The film stars Reese Witherspoon (Freeway, Legally Blonde) as Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the victims. Hobbs originally believed that Echols, Baldwin and Misskelley murdered her son, but as the case dragged on and more details became available, she came to believe that the trio did not commit the heinous crime. Colin Firth (A Single Man) will also star. Recent additions to the cast include Kristopher Higgins, Collette Wolfe, Justin Castor, Kris Polaha and Seth Meriwether.
Mark Sevi wrote the original draft of the screenplay, with the current draft penned by Scott Derrickson (whose Sinister has some really great scares) and Paul Boardman. READ MORE
Wow. Half of me feels like this is a crass, TMZ style approach to casting – and the other half of me can’t wait to see this movie (even though I didn’t like the first one). Charlie Sheen (Wall Street, Platoon “Two And A Half Men”) has been cast as the U.S. President in Machete Kills, the sequel to Robert Rodriguez’ Machete. Earlier today he admitted that his meltdown last year was brought on by a psychotic break, so you have to wonder if him diving into this role along with his new series “Anger Management” is a good idea for him personally. Either way, between him and Mel Gibson Machete Kills is certainly making some brave casting choices.
Rodriguez took to his Twitter account just moments ago saying, “I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon…”
He will star alongsode Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Edward James Olmos, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara and Zoe Saldana in the flick spawned from a faix trailer included in Tarantino and Rodriguez’ 2007 Grindhouse.
“The sequel finds the titular ex-federale (Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico’s leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a nuclear missile.”

Update: San Diego Comic-Con panel highlights added inside!
Is this the return of the Season 1 left-behinds? We all know that Michael Rooker’s Merle Dixon will be coming back for “The Walking Dead Season 3“. Now Lennie James (Snatch), who heartbreakingly portrayed Morgan Jones in the Pilot Episode (having to shoot his zombie wife – ouch), is saying the producers have occasionally reached out to him to come back but he’s been too busy.
He tells Digital Spy, “It remains a possibility I could return. The character I played is away for a long time, so it’s kind of up to them whether I stay away or if I come back. There have been a few back and forth conversations and they check up on me every now and then. I had a fantastic time working on the pilot with Andy Lincoln and especially Frank Darabont. He’s somebody that I’d directorially always wanted to work with and I’m glad I got the opportunity.”
James added, “There’s a possibility I might go back. It just depends on timing-wise if I’m free. At least one of the times they contacted me about it, I was busy doing something else.”
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) returns this fall alongside newly added Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the villain known simply as The Governor (David Morrissey). READ MORE
“American Horror Story” is adding Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love) to its new hospital ward. Per EW, “The final major piece of casting for the second season of FX’s thriller American Horror Story is falling into place. Joseph Fiennes is in negotiations to appear as a regular on AHS season 2. The actor would play the head of the institution for the criminally insane where star Jessica Lange works, and will also be the object of her attraction; the pair have a May/December romance. Not much else is known about his character but we’re told he’s “tortured” — not surprising given the dark world of AHS.”
We already knew that Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Adam Levine, Lizzie Brochere, Chloe Sevigny and James Cromwell has all been locked in, with the returning cast playing new roles. And Murphy had also disclosed that the season would be “set in an institution for the criminally insane.”
Murphy has been talking a lot about how this season will be different from the last. He previously stated “I don’t want to say what Zach and Lily are doing, or what anybody else is doing, until we get closer to [fall]. But I’ll continue to say that everybody is playing the opposite of what they played last year, which I think is why they’re all so into it. Like, I have talked to Zach and Jessica and they were very excited… and that’s a rare thing.” READ MORE
Matt Gerald (pictured below; Avatar, “The Shield”) will have the chance to chow down on pulled pork sandwiches in Miami soon, he’s been cast in Season 7 of “Dexter”. Per EW he’s joined up for a “multi-episode arc as a violent blue-collar criminal.”
Last week Katia Winter (Arena) was cast as a Russian stripper who works in a Miami club. She joined fellow Season 7 newbie Ray Stevenson (“Rome”), who was recently cast a high-ranking member of an Eastern European crime ring who arrives in Miami determined to learn who killed one of his associates, and TV vet Jason Gedrick as the owner of the club where Winter’s character works.
“Dexter”‘s seventh season is set to premiere Sunday, September 30. READ MORE
Wildworks Productions announced that the horror thriller, Stripped, initially set to film two years ago in 2010, will begin principal photography in Dallas, Texas on June 8th. Directed by John Wildman from a script co-penned by Wildman and Justina Walford, the film has just undergone some last minute casting changes.
Melodie Sisk, Gabriel Horn and R.J. Hanson are joining the horror thriller. Sisk has been cast to play the leader of a “family” of malevolent women that threaten the lives of a trio of young men on a birthday outing, with Horn and Sanford set to play two brothers that are part of that trio. Sisk and Horn replace the previously announced Tiffany Shepis and Michael Guarnera.
“‘Stripped’ is described as post-feminist horror, following the events surrounding a birthday outing with two brothers and a friend which turns into a horrific fight for survival after they become trapped in a house with a “family” of malevolent women.“
Abigail Breslin (Zombieland, Little Miss Sunshine) has just committed to starring in photographer Tyler Shields slasher debut Final Girl. I know she’s used to doing some fairly serious, tasking stuff – but this sounds like a very intense role.
From Studio City Pictures, and penned by Steve Scarlata, Alejandro Seri and Johnny Silver, the pic “Follows a pack of feral teenage boys who choose the wrong girl to be the victim of their final ‘initiation.’”
As far as intensity is concerned, head inside for the super graphic sales art this picture took to Cannes. READ MORE
Yesterday we reported that Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games) had been cast in David Gordon Green’s Suspiria. The film, a remake of Dario Argento’s classic, is clearly gearing up in a big way and has added several other names to the cast.
Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, I Heart Huckabees), two-time Academy Award-nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs; The Woman in Black), Michael Nyqvist (MI:4 Ghost Protocol; Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Antje Traue (Superman: Man of Steel) have joined the cast. Clearly we’re talking about a movie with a higher pedigree than The Sitter. It’s important to remember that Green is a supremely talented guy who doesn’t just make stoner comedies.
Argento’s 1977 horror pic followed Suzie, a young girl who travels to Europe to attend a world-renowned school, only to learn that the academy is a front for a coven of witches.
Green is directing from a script he co-wrote with Chris Gebert. Crime Scene Pictures principals Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are producing with Francesco Melzi d’Eril of Memo Films and I Am Love helmer Luca Guadagnino of First Sun.
Production will start in September.
The fist time I saw Anna Faris was when she played Cindy Campbell in the original Scary Movie back in 2000, and she’s been a loyal staple of the franchise ever since. But all things change, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be back for Scary Movie 5.
Faris told Coming Soon, “No, I don’t think I’m going to do it. I don’t think I’m part of that. I don’t know exactly what’s happening with it, but I hear it’s sort of in the works and stuff.” While that’s not a flat out no, it doesn’t sound like she’s in the loop. Nor does it really sound like she cares to be. I actually think this is a good thing, both her and the franchise have been good to each other, and four films is enough. Of course, I’m a little tainted by the fact that I think she can still be funny – something the Scary Movie franchise can’t exactly lay claim to anymore.
Casting is still underway and David Zucker, who wrote and directed both Scary Movie 3 and 4, will be returning to co-write and produce the fifth installment alongside new director Malcolm Lee (Roll Bounce, Undercover Brother). Anthony Anderson (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Scream 4), Regina Hall (Scary Movie 1-4) and Kevin Hart (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Superhero Movie) are all rumored to be returning as well.
The Seventh Season of “Dexter” starts airing on September 30th at 9pm ET/PT, and we’re starting to get a glimpse of the shape it might take. Now that his sister, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), knows he’s a killer – and is in love with him – Season Seven was already promising to deviate from the formula a bit.
Now we’re getting an idea of a potential heavy hitter in the upcoming year. THR is reporting that Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone, “Rome”) “has booked a multiepisode arc on the seventh season of the Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter fronted serial killer drama.” He’ll be playing Isaac, the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate who comes to Miami to determine who killed one of his associates.
What do you want from this next season of “Dexter”? There’s only two more years left in the show, how would you like to see them play out?
And the south gets two more. Deadline is reporting that Ana De La Reguera (“Eastbound And Down”; pictured above) and Amber Stevens (The Amazing Spider-Man; pictured below) have joined the cast of Jessabelle. Saw VI and Saw 3D director Kevin Greutert is directing the supernatural tale penned by Robert Ben Garant (“Reno 911!”). Blumhouse (The Lords of Salem, Insidious, Paranormal Activity) is teaming up with Lionsgate for the project.
Per Deadline, “Ana de la Reguera and Amber Stevens have joined the Lionsgate horror movie. Reguera will play a physical therapist. Stevens role is being kept under wraps.”
They join the previously announced leads Sarah Snook, Joelle Carter (“Justified”) and Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World). Snook will play the terrified protag, while Webber will play her childhood friend who helps her uncover the truth about her family. The film is “about a girl who is forced to return to her father’s home in Louisiana when a car accident leaves her without the use of both her legs. What she finds there is a mystery surrounding her own birth and an angry ghost (named Jessabelle) that seems determined to destroy her.”
The projected started filming on April 2nd and is one of at least three horror films currently shooting in beautiful Wilmington, N.C. READ MORE
Now that director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Predators) and producer Alexander Rodnyansky are in full pre-production swing on Machete Kills a bit of significant casting news is beginning to trickle in. Word has it that Jessica Alba (Idle Hands, Fantastic Four; pictured inside), and Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast And The Furious, Resident Evil: Retribution; pictured inside) are in talks to appear in the sequel. One would presume this means they’re reprising their respective roles as Sartana and Luz, but you never know in the topsy turvy creative universe of Robert Rodriguez.
Machete Kills (as teased in the closing credits of the first Machete), the film is the second in a planned trilogy. Danny Trejo returns as the title character. The first film starred Trejo as Machete as a Mexican, an ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, and is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. The sequel will be the first U.S. picture to be produced and financed by Alexander Rodnyansky, whose Hollywood expansion plans include a $120 million film fund with Media Talent Group’s Geyer Kosinski. AR Films U.S. is a new partnership between AR Films and Aldamisa Entertainment, whose Sergei Bespalov will manage worldwide sales of Machete Kills in Berlin.
Rodriguez has hinted that the third film in the trilogy will take place in space. We’ll see on that one. Machete Kills starts filming soon, with Rodriguez set to take the reigns on Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For immediately afterward. READ MORE
Jose Padilha’s RoboCop has been the subject of some recent pre-production PR gaffes, such as lead actor Joel Kinnaman telling MTV to expect this Robocop to be “more human” and that “you’re going to see his eyes.” While such changes might prove not to be so misguided in the context of the final film, the general idea of such a daringly classic film being remade in today’s studio environment has many fans of the original concerned. How can they possibly hope to match the original? While we won’t know the answer until we see the film, it’s a nice surprise to hear that there’s actually a pretty great supporting cast being considered.
While no deals have been reported as being finalized – we’re getting word that Edward Norton (Fight Club, The Bourne Legacy), Sean Penn (Mystic River, Milk), Rebecca Hall (The Town) and Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien) are being considered for roles. Norton, if cast, would actually be playing “Norton” – a key scientist behind the RoboCop program. Bernal would be playing Murphy’s former partner who begins hooking up with Hall (Murphy’s “widow”) after they both think he’s dead. Ouch! Penn is being considered for the role of “Novack”, a highly political right wing reporter.
Norton in particular is known for not being shy when it comes to tussling with studios over the quality of the product, if he is indeed cast hopefully he can be the type of creative heavy that keeps this thing from going totally off the rails.
Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing. Josh Zetumer wrote the script. Joel Kinnaman is in the lead role originated by Peter Weller. Sony will distribute the MGM film.
RoboCop will be released on August 9th, 2013.
Darko Entertainment and Principato-Young Entertainment announced today that Rob Huebel (The Descendants), Paul Scheer (Piranha 3D), Riki Lindhome (The Last House On The Left) and Keegan-Michael Key (Due Date) are joining the cast of Hell Baby. The film marks co-screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s feature film directorial debut. They join the previously announced Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, Warm Bodies) and Leslie Bibb (7500, Midnight Meat Train) in the film.
In the horror comedy “A young expectant couple moves in to New Orleans most haunted fixer-upper and calls upon The Vatican’s elite exorcism team to save them from a demonic baby. Lennon and Garant will portray that team.” The film is an original script from the multi-hyphenates Lennon and Garant, who have written nine feature films together including Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, Taxi, Reno 911!: Miami, Balls of Fury, and The Pacifier. They are currently writing Rentaghost for 20th Century Fox and Ben Stiller.
Even if I’m not a huge fan of Lennon & Garant’s moneymaking screenwriting behemoths like Night At The Museum, I respect the frankness with which they address those paycheck projects (which pay them a lot) and the other, funnier, stuff they’re more passionate about. I find Lennon particularly hilarious on camera as well.
Hell Baby started filming today in New Orleans.
Warner Bros. Pictures is back on track with Oldboy, their remake of Park Chan-wook’s Korean classic that’s to be helmed by Spike Lee. Variety reports that District 9 star Sharlto Copley (pictured above) has been offered the villain role and is in early talks to join Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen in the revenge pic. In the 2003 original, a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he’s released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.
Deadline drops another small bit of news as Dougray Scott (pictured below; Dark Water, Mission: Impossible II) is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Famke Janssen in Netflix’s new original series “Hemlock Grove,” from Eli Roth and Gaumont International TV. Written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on McGreevy’s upcoming goth horror novel, “‘Hemlock Grove’ revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.”
Scott will play Norman Godfrey, the older brother of Olivia’s late husband, JR, one of the founders of the Godfrey Center for Biomedical Technologies. Wealthy, but with modest tastes and an equally modest home, Norman is sickened by Olivia’s displays of ostentation and the way in which she spoils her son. READ MORE
Some fresh “American Horror Story“ casting comes via TVLine who writes after an exhaustive search that spanned multiple continents, French actress Lizzie Brocheré has won the pivotal new series regular role on the FX thriller.
Last month, “AHS” producers put out a casting call for a femme fatale named “Gia.” Described as a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot, the character — billed as a nemesis for Jessica Lange — was likened to Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted.
According to an insider, Brocheré — known in France for her decidedly NC-17-rated film work(!) — will be playing a revamped version of that role. “The part been changed considerably,” says the source, who declined to provide specifics of the revamp. Too bad FX is a family network; maybe we’ll get a heavy dosage of side-boob? (Or, you could just search for her on Google, turning safe search “off”.)
Little is known about “AHS” Season 2, save for that it will be set on the East Coast and bring back Jessica Lange (who originally played Constance), Zachary Quinto (Chad), Evan Peters (Tate), Sarah Paulson (psychic Billie Dean) and Lily Rabe (doctor’s wife Nora), all as new characters. Maroon 5 frontman and Voice coach Adam Levine will also appear in an arc as one half of a couple referred to as “The Lovers.”
Andrew Leeds, who is recurring on “Bones,” has been cast in a guest starring/recurring role on the CW drama pilot “Cult,” reports Deadline.
“The series centers on Skye (Jessica Lucas), an inquisitive young production assistant on a wildly popular television show called Cult. After a rash of disappearances and a likely murder, she joins Jeff (Matt Davis), a journalist blogger whose brother was among those gone missing, in investigating the rabid fans of the series who might be re-creating crimes seen on the program in real life.”
Leeds will play Kyle, the network Creative VP recently assigned to Cult. READ MORE
