Titus Welliver (Aka LOST‘s “Man In Black”) has joined the cast of CW’s zombie pilot, Awakening. The thriller tells the story of two sisters who face-off during the zombie apocalypse. Which, aside from sounding RANDOM, is no doubt inspired, in some way, by the success AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Welliver will play “a mysterious figure with piercing eyes and a dark overcoat who is hunting the zombies behind the first wave of the awakening.”
I enjoyed Welliver’s performance as the psychologically scarred, somewhat misunderstood, Island freight train. The character wasn’t as well drawn as he probably should have been, but Welliver delivered. He may be a ‘hunter’ and not a ‘claimer’ in Awakening, but it will be interesting to see him back in genre television.
More Awakening deets: William Laurin, Glenn Davis, Howard T. Owens, Carolyn Bernstein and Todd Cohen will executive-produce. Brian
Hallisay will also star. Brian Hallisay will also star.
