Awesome Stephen King Character added to ‘Castle Rock’
If you needed another reason to tune into to Hulu’s Stephen King based show ‘Castle Rock’ , then let that reason be actor Scott Glenn. The Leftovers actor has joined the cast, stepping into a big pair of shoes, playing recurring character. Alan Pangborn, who has appeared in books ‘Needful Things’ and ‘The Dark Half’. The now retired Sheriff, will be facing all sorts of nasty things, as King’s Universe converges on the little town. Deadline report..
Glenn will play Alan Pangborn, a retired Sheriff who presided over some of the darkest years in Castle Rock’s checkered history. The character is popular in King lore and was at the center of the author’s books Needful Things and The Dark Half. Ed Harris portrayed the character in the 1993 film adaptation of Needful Things while Michael Rooker played him in George Romero’s iteration of The Dark Half the same year.
It only makes sense that Pangborn should make an appearance, after all, Castle Rock is his home town.
Scott Glenn will be joining, Andre Holland, Sissy Spacek, Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy and Bill Skarsgard, for the Bad Robot produced series.
