Jennifer Tilly, Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, Alvia Alyn, Bjorgvin Arnarson and Devon Sawa have joined the cast of the “Chucky” series at SyFy.  The television adaptation focuses on the events following a vintage Chucky doll’s appearance at a suburban yard sale in an idyllic American town. As a series of horrifying murders begin to expose hypocrisies and secrets, the town is thrown into chaos. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies and allies from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.

Arthur is set as Jake Webber, an easy target for Chucky and a loner; Briones is set as Junior Webber, the all-American jock cousin of Jake; Arnarson is set as Devon Lopez, true-crime junkie; and Lind is set as Lexy Taylor, Jake’s bully and Junior’s girlfriend.
