The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Jonathan Hyde and Richard Sammel have joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro's small screen adaptation of his and Chuck Hogan's vampire novel trilogy, The Strain. According to the site, Hyde will play, "Eldritch Palmer, an elderly tycoon who's the third-richest man in the world who has been an invalid since childhood. Though his life-long fight against his frail body, he's developed a relentless drive to attain immortality by any means necessary." Sammel, meanwhile, "will play Thomas Eichorst, a mysterious figure from Professor Abraham Setrakian's past whose re-emergence in New York is not a coincidence." The series has a pilot order (which will be helmed by the Pacific Rim director) but is being eyed for a full 13-episode pickup according to various outlets. What do you think of the cast so far?
