Dougray Scott the Next to Move into Hemlock Grove
And the casting news for Eli Roth's Netflix project Hemlock Grove continues as yet another familiar face has joined the frightful fold that will soon be streaming near you!
According to Deadline, Dougray Scott is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Famke Janssen in Netflix’s new original series from Roth and Gaumont International TV.
If signed, he'll join the previously announced Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley, and Penelope Mitchell.
Written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on McGreevy’s upcoming 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.
