‘Outcast’ Exorcism Series Attracts More Cast Members


outcast_1The latest series to be culled from a Robert Kirkman comic book – Outcast – is casting up big time. With Adam Winged at the helm of the first episode, the show will star Patrick Fugit and Philip Glenister. Deadline reports they’ll be joined by Reg E. Cathey, Julia Crockett, Wrenn Schmidt and Kip Pardue.

Fugit will star as Kyle Barnes, a young man plagued by demonic possession since he was a child.

Glenister as the hard drinking, hard gambling Reverend Anderson and Gabriel Bateman who will play the younger version of Barnes.

Per Deadline:

Cathey will play Giles, Rome’s Chief of Police and a poker buddy of Anderson’s. Although he doesn’t believe in possession quite as strongly as Anderson, he’s seen enough to know there’s some truth to his friend’s assertions about demons. Crockett portrays Sarah Barns, Kyle’s mother, who makes young Kyle’s life a living hell. At first, this might seem like the result of mental illness. But Kyle will come to understand that it’s something more. 

The series is set up at Cinemax.
