Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove for Netflix is quickly filling up and according to Deadline, we may have just found our leading man for the upcoming horror series.
The site reports that Dougray Scott (My Week In Marilyn) is currently in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Famke Janssen in Hemlock Grove. If cast, Scott “will play Norman Godfrey, the older brother of Olivia’s late husband, JR, one of the founders of the Godfrey Center for Biomedical Technologies. Wealthy, but with modest tastes and an equally modest home, Norman is sickened by Olivia’s displays of ostentation and the way in which she spoils her son.”
Hemlock Grove revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill.
Other cast members include, “Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.”
This is shaping up to be one stellar horror series, lets hope that it lives up to the premise.
