Timothy Dalton, two-time James Bond and star of recent features like Hot Fuzz and Toy Story 3, has been cast in the new Showtime drama series "Penny Dreadful," which will begin filming this fall for a 2014 premiere on the network. Dalton is set to play “Sir Malcolm,” a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest. He joins recently announced stars Josh Hartnett and Eva Green.

"Penny Dreadful" is created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, "Call The Midwife"), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and The Impossible, which starred Naomi Watts in an Oscar-nominated performance.
