The Walking Dead’s creator has a new series coming in 2016, “Outcast.” Here is a chance to land a small role.
“Outcast” is now filming in SC and has a few casting calls out for talent to fill some paid background roles including some featured roles. “Outcast” is filming in the Rock Hill, South Carolina area and talent should only apply if they are local. You can check out the casting calls below.
The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman‘s new exorcism series is finally coming to Cinemax. “Outcast” will star Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous, Gone Girl) and is being executive produced by David Alpert of The Walking Dead. Cinemax made the announcement earlier this year that they will be picking up the new show and have ordered 10 episodes for season 1. “Outcast” is based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta. The show doesn’t contain zombies, but it will contain a good amount of supernatural activity. The network released a first look trailer at this years comic con and yes, it’s pretty creepy. “Outcast” follows Kyle Barnes, a man who who has had a life long problem with demonic possession. Kyle, meets Reverend Anderson, a preacher who also has many of his own demons to deal with. Together, they will set off on a journey that will change their lives.
According to the show’s IMDB page, the new series will also star Gabriel Bateman, Erin Beute, Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Cameron Blackwelder. “Outcast” is produced for Cinemax by FOX International Channels and the show’s pilot was directed by Adam Wingard. Cinemax plans for the new series to premiere in 2016 but the exact release date has not yet been announced.
The show began filming this month and began shooting in the town of York last week. The production made the local news when Councilman Bruce Henderson voted against an agreement that allowed the production to film on city property due to the show’s themes of “demonic possession” and “Satan worship.”
In a press release, the network said the following…
Patrick Fugit (“Gone Girl”) stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister (“Life on Mars”) stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. Gabriel Bateman (“Stalker”) stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
“We are thrilled to be in business with Robert Kirkman, a visionary talent who has the unique ability to tap into today’s zeitgeist, making him a perfect fit for the newly expanded CINEMAX roster,” said Lombardo.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Robert Kirkman’s new drama to CINEMAX. OUTCAST is an ambitious series and Adam Wingard has directed a powerful pilot. I am very proud of the work that Robert, Sharon and team have put together,” said Hernan Lopez, President and CEO, FOX International Channels.
