It was late 2009 when we last heard much about the Syfy series “Haven”, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from author Stephen King, but today two names were added to the undoubtedly sure to be expanding cast.
According to King fan site Lilja’s Library Lucas Bryant (“Queer as Folk”) will portray Nathan Wuornos, a wry local cop. Bristling under the thumb of his father, the Chief of Police, Nathan has a quiet, controlled demeanor that often clashes with his new partner Audrey Parker (Emily Rose)’s feisty one: a dichotomy that also makes them perfect complements. As events in the town begin to unfold at a surprising pace, Nathan’s usual controlled sense of calm is put to the test.
Joining Bryant and Rose is genre regular Eric Balfour (TCM 2003, “Six Feet Under”, pictured) as Duke Crocker, a charming yet mysterious jack-of-all-trades. Though Duke outwardly appears to be a free spirit who lives an unobtrusive life on his boat, it becomes apparent that his mellow demeanor may conceal a much darker agenda.
Production should be commencing shortly in Halifax, Nova Scotia under the creative eyes of Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller – the showrunners responsible for all six seasons of The Dead Zone series. Scott Shepard will executive produce alongside the King-familiar duo.
”Haven” centers on a spooky town in Maine where cursed folk live normal lives in exile. When those curses start returning, FBI agent Audrey Parker is brought in to keep those supernatural forces at bay — while trying to unravel the mysteries of Haven.
