We’re just a few weeks away from principal photography on THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, Intrepid’s latest miniseries for Netflix. Today, Executive Producer Trevor Macy and I are elated to unveil the first wave of our cast.
This miniseries is a modern remix of some of the most iconic works of Edgar Allan Poe. To tell this epic tale of greed, horror, and tragedy, we have assembled the largest ensemble cast in the history of Intrepid Pictures.
Let’s start at the very top. Headlining this incredible ensemble, leading this extraordinary cast as Roderick Usher, the towering patriarch of the Usher dynasty… the legendary FRANK LANGELLA.
Also front and center, reuniting with Intrepid for our fourth project together, my dear friend and invaluable collaborator, the one and only… CARLA GUGINO.
As Madeline Usher, Roderick’s sister and the hidden hand of the Usher dynasty, we are thrilled to welcome the graceful, powerful, incomparable… MARY MCDONNELL.
As Poe’s legendary investigator C. Auguste Dupin, we are so honored to welcome back one of my favorite past collaborators, the extraordinary… CARL LUMBLY.
And a new addition to the dark worlds of Intrepid and of Edgar Allan Poe, playing a character surprisingly at home in the shadows, we are thrilled to welcome… the iconic MARK HAMILL.,
Mike Flanagan tweeted out the rest of the cast in a new thread today:
Time for more FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER cast. The largest ensemble in Intrepid’s history continues now with these amazing performers, some new to us, many familiar faces, all descending into the wicked world of Poe. Buckle up, this is going to take a minute…
Joining us after a star-making turn in THE MIDNIGHT CLUB (I cannot WAIT for you to see)… the electrifying RUTH CODD.
And finally (for now), joining us for her fourth time, one of the best actresses we’ve had grace our sets, and an invaluable, irreplaceable member of the Intrepid family. The spectacular, the wonderful, the one and only… ANNABETH GISH.
THIS JUST IN! Wasn’t official when I started tweeting, but it is now – I’m so thrilled to be reunited with this phenomenal actor from THE MIDNIGHT CLUB and MIDNIGHT MASS, in his first non-MIDNIGHT related Intrepid role… the remarkable IGBY RIGNEY
