Two young actresses have joined the cast of A&E’s four-hour adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Bag of Bones” from director Mick Garris: Caitlin Carmichael, who has credits in both “True Blood” and “Dexter”, is playing Kyra Devore while local Canadian thespian Fiona Forsythe has signed on for an as yet unnamed character.

But the real news according to Sea and be Scene is that talk of a Stephen King cameo in the project comes from one of the “higher ups” on the production – with the word being King (pictured right) would be playing a clergyman.

“Bag of Bones”, starring Melissa George, Pierce Brosnan, Annabeth Gish, and Anika Noni Rose, continues to shoot in Nova Scotia with a wrap set for September 28th. It centers on bestselling novelist Mike Noonan (Brosnan), who is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife, Jo (Gish).

A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s lakeside retreat in western Maine, where he becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow (George) and the child’s enormously wealthy grandfather while dealing with mysterious ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him. Garris is directing from a script by Matt Venne.
