Alias Actor Joins Cast of Awake, NBC’s New Sci-Fi Crime Drama
Kevin Weisman (Marshall from Alias) has joined the cast of the upcoming supernatural/sci-fi crime drama series Awake, which is expected to premiere in March on NBC. Awake stars Jason Isaacs (who played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) as Michael Britten, a police detective whose life is splintered in two when he survives a deadly automobile accident. In one reality, Britten’s wife survives the crash but his teenage son is killed; in the other, his wife is dead but his son is alive. Kevin Weisman will play the mysterious Mr. Blonde, who appears in both of Detective Britten’s realities.
Awake was created by Kyle Killen, and also stars B.D. Wong, Steve Harris, Wilmer Valderrama, Laura Allen, and Dylan Minnette.
We were certainly sucked in by the extended promo below. Awake could be one of the most exciting and original shows of 2012, and we’re looking forward to seeing if it lives up to its promise.
