SCREAM is one of those stories where Horror and fun come together as one. A perfect blend that is not easily created out of thin air. Ghostface is a brilliant killer as the mask or masks could be worn by anyone which adds the mystery element to it all. We recently brought you the core casting news for MTV's SCREAM television pilot. Four more additions have jumped aboard with one of the previously added cast members having been replaced.
Joining the cast is Bex Taylor-Klaus, who is best known from AMC's THE KILLING and CW's ARROW. She will be portraying Audrey Jensen, a character who was previously going to be played by Amy Forsyth.
Here is a look at the new additions along with their character descriptions.
Bex Taylor-Klaus plays Audrey Jensen… the daughter of a Lutheran pastor. She’s described as an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.
Bobby Campo will recur as Seth Branson, the hot English teacher at Lakewood High who has an easy charm and is clearly one of the “cool” teachers, who can go with it if a lesson plan gets a little off-track.
Connor Weil will be a series regular and portray Will Belmont, an all-American high school basketball player who adores his girlfriend, Emma (Fitzgerald).
Joel Gretsch is set as Sheriff Clark Hudson, a good guy and good sheriff who is father to Kieran (Amadeus Serafini).
The pilot episode will see Jamie Travis directing a script penned by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin.
Backing the project will be Dimension Films, along with Wes Craven, Marianne Maddalena, Cathy Konrad, and the Weinsteins as executive producers. Kevin Williamson will not be having anything to do with SCREAM at this point.
The four new additions join the current cast of Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Carlson Young, and Amadeus Serafini.
Here are their character bios:
Fitzgerald will star as Emma Duvall, a classic beauty whose looks and popularity hide a natural shyness and intellectual nature. Her new life with the “in crowd” leaves her estranged from her from childhood best friend, Audrey. The character is the lead in MTV’s Scream take and bears a resemblance to Neve Campbell’s tortured high school student Sidney Prescott in the 1996 feature film.
Karna is set as Noah Foster, a creative computer genius with a vast knowledge of pop culture and the tech world. He’s best friends with Audrey.
Young will portray Brooke Maddox, the charismatic leader of the popular crew whose personality vacillates between bubbly sweetness and ferocious sex appeal.
Serafini will be Kieran Wilcox, the mysterious new kid in town with a dark side and a tough exterior that hint at experience beyond his years.
It is still a possibility that Wes Craven could still step in to direct a future episode. We will continue to follow the upcoming MTV SCREAM TV Series as it continues to develop.
