The latest on the Strain-front? Well, yesterday, Corey Stoll joined the cast and, today, we’re learning that Kevin Durand will also appear in the pilot.
Durand was on Lost for a bit and appeared in Real Steel and Cosmopolis.
According to Variety, he’ll play “a second-generation Ukranian-American, a once-solitary rat exterminator who eagerly joins the war against vampires who have invaded New York.”
The Strain is based on a novel by Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
When a Boeing 777 lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway, the Centers for Disease Control, fearing a terrorist attack, calls in Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. Only an elderly pawnbroker from Spanish Harlem suspects a darker purpose behind the event – an ancient threat intent on covering mankind in darkness.
