Development News - Garret Dillahunt Set as Lead on TNT's 'Monsters of God'; Aden Young Exits USA's 'Damnation'

Development News - September 28, 2016

TNT's Monsters of God and USA's Damnation.

  • Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope, The Mindy Project) has been cast in the lead role on the drama pilot written by Rod Lurie. He will play Colonel "Terrible" Bill Lancaster, the newly in-charge leader at Fort Thayer, a military base in post-Civil War Texas that exists to make peace with the nearby Comanche tribe. Vicious, relentless and a tower of a man, he was a fighter for the Noth in the Civil War but his morals stopped there. He now focuses on the total extermination of the Comanche, a goal in contrast to his orders.
  • Aden Young (Rectify) has exited the cast of the drama pilot written by Tony Tost. He was set to play the lead role of Seth Davenport, a man with a violent past and a secret ambition to lead a revolution against American industrialists. The exit was due to creative differences over the direction of the character.
