Justin Theroux Cast in HBO Pilot ‘The Leftovers’

Project hails from Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta

Justin Theroux has been cast in Damon Lindelof’s HBO pilot “The Leftovers.”

Drama, based on a novel of the same name written by Tom Perrotta, centers on life after the Rapture happens — and the people who didn’t make the cut, and are left behind in a suburban community.

Theroux will play Kevin Garvey, a chief of police and father of two who is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in this new world. The thesp recently appeared in feature film “Wanderlust,” and held a recurring role on NBC’s “Parks and Rec.”

Theroux shares a history with HBO as well, as he appeared in “Six Feet Under” a decade ago.

Lindelof is exec producing and co-writing “The Leftovers” with Perrotta. Peter Berg, also an executive producer, is slated to helm the pilot. Ron Yerxa, Albert Berger and Sarah Aubrey serve as exec producers as well.

Warner Bros. TV is producing “The Leftovers.”
