Deadwood fave joins del Toro’s Crimson Peak


“Supernatural” and “Deadwood” star Jim Beaver has joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak”.

The actor revealed the news via his Facebook account :

Okay, I’m back again with that big deal that I couldn’t talk about but couldn’t shut up about either. Well, now I can talk about it, because today it came true. Guillermo del Toro, director of PAN’S LABYRINTH, HELLBOY, and the upcoming PACIFIC RIM, has cast me in one of five leading roles in his new film CRIMSON PEAK, a Gothic ghost story also starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam. We start shooting in Toronto in January.

“Crimson Peak”, said to be somewhat of a haunted house thriller (script has been JJ Abrams-ized), stars Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.
