BTS of Hulu’s Castle Rock with “The Kid”, “The Historian”, and “The Psychic Mantis” at San Diego Comic-Con


When Hulu goes dark, Hulu goes really dark.  But also, when Hulu goes really dark, the result is a piece of production that probably deserves all the nominations while at the same time making you question your moral barometer for binging something so evil for entertainment.  We've all seen or have been berated for not seeing but promising we will soon Handmaiden's Tale, so if that's any testament to the quality of series we must hold Hulu hostage too now expect Castle Rock to be nauseatingly amazing.  That's why MTRNetwork crossed its fingers for press room access at Comic-Con this year; new shows have the best roundtable questions.  Sadly, only part of prayers were answered and while we couldn't get a seat at the table, we did have a spot on the carpet for photos.


The cast of Castle Rock is pretty stellar: Andre Holland (Selma, Moonlight), Melanie Lynskey (Two and A Half Men, Togetherness), Bill Skarsgard (Another One of the Other Skarsgards, IT), Jane Levy (Don't Breathe, Suburgatory), Sissy Spacek (If you don't know who Sissy Spacek is Kill yo self).  Andre Holland and Sissy Spacek weren't able to make the press event, but Bill Skarsgard, Jane Levy, Melanie Lynskey, and the creators were in attendance.  The story is anyone's guess since it's derived from the writings of Stephen King and not particularly one book or property, but we do know that King's Castle Rock town is part of his fictional Maine topography which includes such memorable places as Derry, the home of IT.  This has to be a writer's dream.  Roles are as follows:

Melanie Lynskey plays Molly Strand, a real-estate business owner who's a combination of the Jersey Medium and Mantis from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.

Bill Skarsgard plays "The Kid", an inmate at Shawshank, YES THAT SHAWSHANK! And he's been in a cage for years.  YEAARRSSS!!
