Julia Stiles to Walk in the Midnight Sun for NBC
I've never been able to grasp why people seem to like Julia Stiles. To me, she's one of those actors who is adequate in her roles, but never manages to be anything other than a person reciting their lines. But in a world where Channing Tatum is a movie star, it seems appropriate that Stiles keep getting work too.
Deadline is reporting that Stiles joins the cast of "Midnight Sun". The thriller, based on an Israeli format, follows the mysterious disappearance of the Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska, and a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy. Stiles will play FBI agent Leah Kafka, while Connor O’Farrell ("The Pacific") will play the town police chief and Emma Bell ("The Walking Dead"), his daughter Rory.
If nothing else, it sounds like an interesting concept for a series. Makes me wish it was anyone other than Stiles, but maybe she'll wind up surprising me one of these days.
