The Hulu TV series based on Stephen King’s works set in Castle Rock has so far been hush-hush with details about the cast. All we previously had was star Andre Holland.
Now we have confirmation that Sissy Spacek, the original Carrie herself, has joined the cast! And with her is rising scream queen Jane Levy (‘Evil Dead’, ‘Don’t Breathe’). Their characters are summarized thusly: “Spacek will play Ruth Deaver, estranged adoptive mother of Henry (Holland), a retired professor whose fading memories may hold a key to Castle Rock’s unsettling past. Levy plays Jackie, the death-obsessed, self-appointed historian of Castle Rock.”
Levy is actually pretty busy, having also signed on to Netflix’s series ‘Sea Oak’. The show, a horror comedy, is centered around a timid woman (Glenn Close) who was murdered and comes back from the dead as an angry zombie determined to be more assertive.
Currently ‘Sea Oak’ is in development and ‘Castle Rock’ is set for a premiere in 2018.
