Development News - October 13, 2016

Amazon's Budding Prospects and TNT's Let the Right One In.

  • Joel David Moore (Forever, Bones) has been cast on the comedy pilot starring Will Sasso. He will play Phil, Felix's childhood friend who is less introspective than Felix, the manic to Felix's "depressive." Better looking, more cocky and more outgoing than Felix, he's a little more secure in that he's found his art, a successful niche within his peer group. He thinks of himself as mechanically inclined, but often takes things apart and can't put them back together.
  • Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula) and Benjamin Wadsworth (Dad vs. Lad) have landed lead roles on the drama pilot written by Jeff Davis. Wadsworth will play Henry, a shy and lonely 16-year-old boy who lives with his mother and faces constant bullying from a trio of older kids. He becomes intrigued by his new neighbor, Eli (Kristine Froseth), unaware that she is a vampire. Kretschmann will play Inspector Eriksson, a foreign police officer who partners up with the FBI who's been on the trail of Eli and her protector for a decade and thinks they have killed over 100 victims. He has been a few steps behind his quarry all along, having followed the exsanguination murderers across Europe to North America. He knows their methods, but does not yet know their faces and names.
