Harry Potter alum Toby Jones has joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming event series Wayward Pines, TVWise has learned.
Jones joins a growing cast which includes Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary) as lead character Ethan Burke, Melissa Leo (Homicide: Life On The Street) as Nurse Pam and Carla Gugino (Political Animals) as Kate Hewson. He will play Dr. Jenkins, a Psychiatrist who treats Ethan Burke and believes his paranoia regarding the disappearance of two agents is due to trauma from a car crash.
Based on Blake Crouch’s best-selling novel Pines, Wayward Pines hails from M. Night Shyamalan and follows US Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) as he arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. What’s wrong with Wayward Pines? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. Based on a spec-script written by Chad Hodge, Wayward Pines is produced by FX Productions with Shyamalan, Hodge, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producers.
