Juliette Lewis Cast In ‘Wayward Pines’

The Firm

‘Whip It’ actress Juliette Lewis has joined Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary) in the M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) directed series Wayward Pines. As reported by Deadline, Lewis will star in the Fox production as a bartender who crosses paths with Dillon’s Ethan Burke.

Burke is a Secret Service agent who travels to the small town of ‘Wayward Pines’ to locate two missing federal agents. His investigation will get worse when he senses that his life is at stake. Lewis and Dillon’s characters will reportedly share a connection based on their dislike for the Pines. The event series is based on the best selling novel from writer Blake Crouch. Lewis is the latest actor to sign on to the thriller. Actors Tim Griffin (Prime Suspect) and Charlie Tahan were cast in the series last week.

Lewis is best known for her work in ‘Natural Born Killers’, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’, ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ and ‘Due Date’. The actress just recently appeared in the TV series ‘The Firm’ as the character Tammy, ‘Portlandia’, ‘Open Road’ and the short ‘Happy New Year 2013! With Juliette Lewis’.

Lewis just finished up filming on the 2013 film ‘August: Osage County’ and ‘Cal & Kelly’ from director Jen McGowan.
