Nick Stahl has joined the cast of Showtime’s upcoming thriller drama series “Let the Right One In.” Stahl joins previously announced cast members Demián Bichir, Anika Noni Rose, Grace Gummer, Madison Taylor Baez, Kevin Carroll, Ian Foreman, and Jacob Buster. “Let the Right One In” is inspired by the original Swedish novel and romantic horror film of the same name, which deals with themes of human fragility, strength, and compassion.
The series centers around Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez), whose lives were changed forever when they turned into a vampire ten years ago. While Eleanor lives a closed life, only going out at night, her father tries his best to provide the bloody food she needs to survive. Stahl will play Matthew, who is described as a soldier and an extremely loyal mechanic for the Logan family.
Stahl’s films include Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City”, “Terminator 3”, Todd Field’s “In the Bedroom”, “Carnivale”, Richard Loncraine’s “My One and Only”, “Quid Pro Quo” and “Sleepwalking”. He will next star in “Knights of the Zodiac” with Sean Bean and Famke Janssen, and in “What Josiah Saw” with Robert Patrick and Kelli Garner.
“Let the Right One In” is produced by Tomorrow Studios (“Cowboy Bebop,” “Snowpiercer”) and Andrew Hinderaker (“Penny Dreadful”). Hinderaker is executive producing with Seith Mann, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Alissa Bachner. Hinderaker wrote the pilot episode and Mann directed the pilot episode.
