Hulu’s upcoming Stephen King-inspired series Castle Rock has scored its first cast member, with Andre Holland (Moonlight, The Knick) signing on to play Henry, a death row attorney who has a unique history with the town of Castle Rock.
Produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, Castle Rock is set to deliver a shared Stephen King universe of sorts, and will “weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.”
Castle Rock is the fictional Maine town that appears in many of King’s works, including The Dead Zone, Cujo, The Body, The Dark Half and Needful Things. The series will mark the second King collaboration between Hulu and Bad Robot after the 2016 miniseries 11.22.63.
