Eight More Cast Members Venture into The Mist


Further casting has been announced for Spike’s new original scripted series “The Mist,” based on the classic Stephen King novella of the same name. From TWC-Dimension Television (TV), “The Mist” goes into production later this summer and premieres on Spike in 2017.

“The Mist” tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear?

The additional casting includes (in alphabetical order) the following, who join the previously announced Frances Conroy as “Nathalie,” a modern day ecological martyr, and Ayssa Sutherland as “Eve Cunningham,” a wife and mother who fights to protect her teenage daughter from unknown dangers lurking both inside and outside the mist while facing down her past:

  • Gus Birney as “Alex Cunningham,” the teenage daughter of Kevin and Eve Cunningham. She’s always been the “good daughter,” but her over-protective mother helps to kick-start a rebellious streak.
  • Dan Butler as “Father Romanov,” a priest who is caught in between modernity and tradition; he has lost his faith but clings to the ritual.
  • Luke Cosgrove as “Jay Heisel,” a popular local football superstar and the son of the town sheriff, who finds himself accused of a heinous crime.
  • Danica Curcic as “Mia Lambert,” a drug-addicted woman on the run and in search of a mysterious stash of money.
  • Okezie Morro as “Jonah Dixon,” a military man with amnesia. He can’t remember who he is. As the truth about his identity unravels, shocking secrets will be revealed.
  • Darren Pettie as “Connor Heisel,” the local alpha male, town sheriff, and father to local football superstar Jay. He struggles to maintain order in an increasingly chaotic and dangerous situation, finding himself up against many who have it out for his accused son.
  • Russell Posner as “Adrian Garff,” an insecure young teenager who comes to the defense of his best friend, Alex, after she is the victim of a brutal crime. A witness to the crime, he finds himself at the center of a controversy which threatens to rip apart the community.
  • Isiah Whitlock, Jr., as “Gus Redman,” a local mall manager. When a new society forms from the mist survivors at the mall, Gus will have to decide if he will take the role of leader and exactly how far he will go to keep order.

Christian Torpe and Amanda Segel are executive producers of “The Mist.” Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, and David Glasser are executive producers for TWC-Dimension Television with Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer, and Keith Levine as producers.
