CBS All Access Announces Additional The Stand Cast Members

-

CBS All Access today announced more The Stand cast members, including Whoopi Goldberg, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Brad William Henke and Daniel Sunjata. In addition, Collider is reporting that Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little LiesTrue Blood) will play the Man in Black, Randall Flagg.

They join previously-announced cast members James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young and Henry Zaga. The limited event series is based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name.

Whoopi Goldberg will portray Mother Abagail, a prophet who receives visions from God and guides survivors of the superflu.

Jovan Adepo will play Larry Underwood, a young musician with a taste for fame, as well as illegal substances. When the plague hits, he is forced to confront his demons as he makes his way to the new world.

Owen Teague will portray Harold Lauder. After the superflu ravages his town, Harold goes in search of others with fellow survivor Frannie Goldsmith. While his intentions are good, jealousy and his infatuation with Frannie threaten to lead him down a dark path.

Brad William Henke will portray Tom Cullen, Nick Andros’ traveling companion who is developmentally disabled due to a terrible fall as a child. A sweet soul, he will be instrumental in their fight for survival.

Daniel Sunjata will play Cobb, a member of the military tasked with supervising Stu Redman as the government searches for a cure during the outbreak of the superflu.

The Stand is Stephen King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios. Josh Boone and Ben Cavell will write and executive produce, with Boone also directing. Stephen King will write the last chapter of the series, providing a new coda that isn’t found in the book. Roy Lee, Jimmy Miller and Richard P. Rubinstein will also serve as executive producers with Will Weiske serving as co-executive producer. Knate Lee, Jill Killington and Owen King will serve as producers.
