You know things are weird with your show when the dad from “Malcolm in the Middle” is the devil.
Such is the case with Fallen, which ABC Family has ponied up the cash for four additional hours of (likely be broken up as two movies) which are shooting in Vancouver now. The first two-hour movie did well enough when it premiered over the summer (on the last day of Comic Con, no less, so there was a lot of hype during the show) to justify more episodes.
According the The Hollywood Reporter Bryan Cranston, aka the dad from “Malcolm in the Middle” has been cast as Satan for the new movies, which follow the trials and tribulations of an 18-year-old named Aaron who recently discovered he’s a seraphim, the offspring of an angel and a human pairing. He’s got a lot of new responsibility most kids his age don’t have to face, like stopping evil from taking over the world, and now he’s got to deal with Malcolm’s dad.
It’s just weird casting, sorry. I’ve read the four Fallen books written by Tom Sniegoski (check ‘em out), but from what I’ve heard the next two films won’t follow any of the other books, which is too bad as they’ve got lots of cool stuff in them.
Look for more of Fallen on ABC Family this summer.
