NBC Pilot REM Signs on Five Cast Members


NBC has signed on five new cast members for its drama pilot REM. They will be acting opposite the show’s lead Jason Isaacs (Brotherhood). Deadline.com details that REM is an “Inception-style thriller that centers on Detective Mark Britten (Isaacs), who wakes up after an accident to find he is living in two different realities, one in which he has killed his son Rex and one in which he has killed his wife Hannah. Wilmer Valderrama (That ’70s Show) will play Detective Richard Vega, Britten’s gregarious new partner in one reality. And Steve Harris (The Practice) will play a seasoned, cynical, wry-humored police detective, who is Britten’s partner in the other reality. BD Wong (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) will play Britten’s therapist in the reality where he has killed his son.”

Laura Allen (Terriers) and Dylan Minnette (Men of a Certain Age) were also cast in this project. Minnette will play Britten’s teenage son Rex, while Allen is Rex’s tennis coach, who has become his confidante in the wake of the recent loss of his mother.

REM comes from Kyle Killen (Lone Star) and 20th Century Fox TV.
