Carla Gugino Cast In Fox’s M. Night Shyamalan Event Series ‘Wayward Pines’

By | Thursday July 11, 2013 @ 10:00am PDT

Carla Gugino (Watchmen, Entourage, Karen Sisco) has been cast in Wayward Pines– M. Night Shyamalan‘s event series for Fox.  She will play  Kate Hewson — former love interests of Matt Dillon‘s Secret Service agent Ethan Burke. Kate is also Ethan’s former partner at the Secret Service and a resident of bucolic Wayward Pines, ID, where Ethan shows up on a job to find two missing federal agents. But, because it’s a Shyamalan project — and because it’s based on Blake Crouch’s novel Pines — we know he doesn’t turn up two agents, just a multitude of questions, and each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, and from the husband and father he was, until it looks like he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. On the bright side, he discovers the love he once shared with the capable, loyal, fiery, blunt, and fearless Kate still simmers just below the surface. Wayward Pines is set to debut in the 2014 part of next season. Read More »
