Deadline is reporting that casting is underway on AMC’s upcoming horror-drama NOS4A2, with Olafur Darri Olafsson (Lady Dynamite), Virginia Kull (The Looming Tower) and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher) signing on to appear as series regulars in the show, which has been developed by Jami O’Brien (Fear the Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels).
Based on the bestselling novel by Joe Hill, NOS4A2 follows Vic McQueen, “a young, working class artist who discovers she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.”
Olafsson has been cast as Bing Partridge, described as “a hard worker with a mysterious past and an impressionable mind”. Kull will play Linda McQueen, “Vic’s tough, blue-collar mom determined to hold her family together and protect her daughter”, with Moss-Bachrach as Chris McQueen, “Vic’s charming, blue-collar dad with a weakness for drink but a deep love for his daughter.”
NOS4A2 is slated to air on AMC in 2019.
