Julia Stiles takes female lead in NBC's "cult" series "Midnight Sun"

03.02.2012by: Jake Dee

What is it with cults these days. I just wrote about a new film called THE OCCULT, and if you've been paying attention the last few months, there seems to be like 48 new TV shows dealing with "cults" in some form or fashion. One of them is NBC's "Midnight Sun," which just nabbed a pretty recognizable name as its female lead...

Deadline has it that Julia Stiles (pictured) has joined Emma Bell and Daniella Pineda for the pilot episode of "Midnight Sun." Stiles will play Leah Kafka, a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy.

Place her role in the larger context of the show:

After the mysterious disappearance of Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska, a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation uncovers a larger conspiracy.

So Stiles is the key cog then, no? Good for her, as she also has five or so movies yet to come out...A-list and indie. She's also no stranger to TV, coming off a sizeable stint on "Dexter" last season. Hopefully she's treated with adroit writing...as these shows often live and die by the quality of the scripts. Know what I mean...

Extra Tidbit: Stiles next appears in Todd Berger's comedy IT'S A DISASTER.

Good choice

I have to admit I went for years not liking Stiles, mostly due to her choices of roles early in her career. The first I started to warm to her was in the 2nd Bourne movie. Her turn in Dexter was excellent IMO. So I might tune into this depending on word of mouth.

Terrible Choice

Well this just knocked this series from "must see" to "will probably avoid". I can't stand this shitty actress, not only is she not cute, but she's an awful actress, what a shame for a decent concept...
