Fuller; D: John Hillcoat) - Jamie Hector ("The Wire") has snagged a role on the drama pilot, about a Marine marksman (Logan Marshall-Green) who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 only to find himself shunned and demonized. He'll play the titular character's best friend Arthur in the hour, which also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Noah Taylor, Skipp Sudduth and Stellan Skarsgard. (TVLine.com)


THE STRAIN (FX/FX Productions; W: Chuck Hogan & Guillermo del Toro; D: Guillermo del Toro) - Sean Astin is the latest actor to board the drama pilot, about the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City which is tasked with investigating a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.
