HBO’s Lovecraft Country Series Adds Tony Goldwyn To Cast

According to Deadline, Scandal alum Tony Goldwyn has been tapped for a guest-starring role in HBO‘s upcoming horror drama series adaptation Lovecraft Country which will be executive produced by Oscar winner Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us). Goldwyn is set to portray the role of Samuel Braithwhite, described as someone who views people as assets and objects and outsiders — including his daughter Christina — as inferiors.

Goldwyn will be joining an ensemble cast led by Jonathan Majors (White Boy Rick) as Atticus Black, Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Birds of Prey) as Letitia Dandridge, Wunmi Mosaku (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Ruby Dandridge, Aunjanue Ellis (If Beale Street Could Talk) as Hippolyta Black, Michael Kenneth Williams (Hap & Leonard) as Montrose Freeman, and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Christina Braithwhite.

The hour-long drama series is based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, released earlier this year. The show will be written by Misha Green (Underground), who will serve as showrunner and executive produce. Lovecraft Country will follow “25-year-old Atticus Freeman, who joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find his missing father. The journey sets off their fight to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits.”

It will also feature Courtney B. Vance (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) as George Black, Jamie Harris (Rise of the Planets of Apes) as Eustace Hunt, Jamie Chung (The Gifted) as Ji-Ah, Jordan Patrick Smith as William, Jamie Neumann as Hillary, Erica Tazel as Dora Freeman, and Mac Brandt as Lancaster.

Here is the official synopsis of the novel from Amazon: “Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, 22-year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George—publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide—and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite—heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus’s ancestors—they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours. At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn — led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb — which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his—and the whole Turner clan’s—destruction.”

Lovecraft Country comes to us from Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, Bad Robot, and Warner Bros. Television. Peele and Green will executive produce with Bad Robot’s J.J. Abrams and Ben Stephenson.
