CASTING

Actor Jeremy Davies (“Lost”)  has been cast as a new villain in the Fox series “Sleepy Hollow.” The Emmy award-winning actor joins the fourth season as Malcolm Dreyfuss, who TVLine described as “an eccentric and outspoken tech mogul who became a billionaire before the age of 30, and has since been seeking other worlds to conquer.” “Sleep Hollow” Season 4 will arrive in early 2017.

Hulu, RocketJump, and Lionsgate Studios announced further casting for the upcoming Hulu series “Dimension 404” on Wednesday. Kenneth Choi, most recently seen on “American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson,” has been cast as the cunning drug dealer Kojima. Additionally, Cody Johns (“Summer Forever”) has signed on to play Roy “Killohertz” Torvald, a gamer who ceaselessly consumes a new, time-altering energy drink called “Impulse.” The six-episode sci-fi series, created by Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold, and Dez Dolly will star Lea Michele (“Glee”) and Robert Buckley (“Lipstick Jungle”).
