More casting news has come in for Eli Roth’s Netflix project Hemlock Grove, and we have all the details on just who this former “Six Feet Under” star will be playing. Read on for the latest. You may wanna reactivate your Netflix accounts for this one!
According to TVLine Lili Taylor will play a Gypsy mother on the show, and that’s cool because we love Gypsies and their tears, which we keep in tiny glass vials should we need them to break a curse or something. She joins the previously announced Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley, Dougray Scott, and Penelope Mitchell.
Written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on McGreevy’s Gothic horror novel, Hemlock Grove revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove. Scott will play Norman Godfrey, the older brother of Olivia’s late husband, JR, one of the founders of the Godfrey Center for Biomedical Technologies. Wealthy, but with modest tastes and an equally modest home, Norman is sickened by Olivia’s displays of ostentation and the way in which she spoils her son.
More as it comes.
Kandyse McClure has joined the cast as well. McClure will play Dr. Chausser, an animal behaviorist with a PhD with a history of self-destruction.
