V and Lost Star Elizabeth Mitchell Joins NBC’s Revolution
V and Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell will join the cast of NBC’s futuristic drama Revolution, Chevron One learned today.
Mitchell will take on the role of Rachel Matheson, mother of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers). TV Line reports that Mitchell’s character, originally played by Andrea Roth (Ringer, Rescue Me) in the pilot, will grace the screen via flashback.
Revolution is set to fill a 10 pm slot on Monday nights. From acclaimed producer JJ Abrams and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, the story takes place 15 years after a global blackout that renders humanity without conventional power, leaving its inhabitants to revert to a more primitive society, governed by local and often corrupt militias.
Just as humanity is adjusting to a new way of life, Charlie (Spiridakos) is thrust into an adventure that might just shed light (no pun intended) on what caused the blackout and who is to blame.
Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2″) directed the pilot.
