Haley Joel Osment has joined the cast of the Funny or Die-produced miniseries, "The Spoils of Babylon," Deadline reports. Announced by IFC last month, the television miniseries announced earlier this week that Tobey Maguire and Kristen Wiig have signed on to star. The miniseries is officially described as follows:

“The Spoils of Babylon” is an epic story in the vein of “The Thorn Birds” and “Winds of War.” [It] spans three generations, taking viewers from the oil fields of Texas to boardrooms in New York City, through world war battlefields and velvet sheeted bedrooms. As the story unfolds, the booze, the passion and the heartache lead to illegal arms deals and international espionage with the Shah of Iran, not to mention the creation of the doomed sub-­prime market.

“The Spoils of Babylon” is a television adaptation of a best-­selling epic novel by fictional famous author Eric Jonrosh... The blowsy century-­spanning saga chronicles the sexy and dramatic lives of a family who made their fortune in the oil business.


Famous for his childhood performances in films like The Sixth Sense and A.I., Osment recently starred in the Amazon pilot "Alpha House." In "Babylon," he'll play Winston, the son of Wiig's character.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are executive producing "The Spoils of Babylon" with Casa de mi Padre helmer Matt Piedmont directing from an Andrew Steele screenplay.

"The Spoils of Babylons" will air as six half-hour episodes in late 2013.
