John Cusack will star opposite Rainn Wilson and Sasha Lane on “Sharp Objects” author Gillian Flynn’s upcoming Amazon series “Utopia.”
Cusack will play Dr. Kevin Christie. Charismatic and media-savvy, with a brilliant biotech mind and a philanthropic outlook, Christie altruistically wants to change the world through science.
“Utopia” follows a group of young adults who meet online, and “are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come in to possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel — they discover the conspiracy theories in the comic’s pages may actually be real and are forced into the dangerous, unique and ironic position of saving the world.”
This cast keeps kicking ass – now if only there was a legal way for me to watch the UK original in the States.
