Scott Glenn joins Hulu’s Stephen King series Castle Rock
The Hollywood Reporter brings word about another new casting addition to Hulu‘s Stephen King TV series Castle Rock with the addition of Scott Glenn (Marvel’s Daredevil, The Silence of the Lambs) to the series. He joins a cast that includes Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgård, Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy and another Stephen King alum, Sissy Spacek.
Glenn will play the role of Alan Pangborn, a retired Sheriff who presided over some of the darkest years in Castle Rock’s checkered history. The character previously appeared in King’s stories Needful Things and The Dark Half. Ed Harris played the character in the big screen adaptation of the former.
A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explores various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
The Castle Rock series reunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television, which previously collaborated on event series 11.22.63, based on King’s novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.
Castle Rock is based on characters and situations created by Stephen King. Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason developed the project for television and serve as executive producers along with J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer. The series is from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
