Hulu’s Less Than Zero reboot rounds out cast

After finding its lead star for the drama series pilot, Deadline reports that Hulu has already rounded out the cast for its upcoming adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel Less Than Zero.

Austin Abrams (The Walking Dead), who was cast in the lead role of Clay, will be joined by Lily Donoghue (The Goldbergs), Cooper Koch (Fracture), Keenan Jolliff (Marvel’s Daredevil), Ronen Rubinstein (Dead of Summer) and James Bloor (Leatherface). The drama pilot is going to be developed by Ellis and Craig Wright, the creator of Greenleaf who has also worked on Six Feet Under and Lost.

Donoghue will play Blair, Clay’s former girlfriend portrayed in the 1987 film adaptation by Jami Gertz (The Neighbors), Koch will play Julian, Clay’s childhood friend who is suffering from a drug issue and was previously played by Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers: Infinity War) in the feature film. Jolliff will step into the role of Rip, Julian’s drug dealer previously played by James Spader (The Blacklist), Rubinstein will play Trent, a friend of Clay’s who’s a model at UCLA and was previously played by Brian Wimmer (Tank Girl), and Bloor will play Daniel, an outsider from Clay’s high school who is just as troubled as them and didn’t appear in the film.

Less Than Zero is officially described as follows:

Set in Los Angeles in the early 1980’s, Less than Zero has become a timeless classic. This coolly mesmerizing novel is a raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation who have experienced sex, drugs, and disaffection at too early an age. They live in a world shaped by casual nihilism, passivity, and too much money in a place devoid of feeling or hope.

Clay comes home for Christmas vacation from his Eastern college and re-enters a landscape of limitless privilege and absolute moral entropy, where everyone drives Porches, dines at Spago, and snorts mountains of cocaine. He tries to renew feelings for his girlfriend, Blair, and for his best friend from high school, Julian, who is careering into hustling and heroin. Clay’s holiday turns into a dizzying spiral of desperation that takes him through the relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs and also into the seamy world of L.A. after dark.

Ellis wrote a sequel to the book, Imperial Bedrooms, which was published in 2010. Other works by Ellis previously made into movies also include American PsychoThe Rules of Attraction, and The Informers.
