Oliver Jackson-Cohen joins Mike Flanagan's The Haunting of Hill House

Oliver Jackson-Cohen

The cast of Mike Flanagan's 10 episode Netflix series based on the 1959 Shirley Jackson novel The Haunting of Hill House is rapidly expanding. Over the last couple months we've learned that the series will star Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Kate Siegel, and Timothy Hutton. It was only two days ago that we shared the news of Hutton's casting, and now there's another name to add to the cast list: Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Jackson-Cohen's previous genre credits include the "Edgar Allan Poe vs. a serial killer" film THE RAVEN and the NBC television series Dracula, where he played Jonathan Harker.

As with most of the cast, details on Jackson-Cohen's character were not revealed. The only character we know anything about is Huisman's; he is playing 

Steven Crane, the oldest Crane sibling and a published writer of supernatural books — including a memoir about his family's time living at Hill House.

A "modern reimagining" of Jackson's story, The Haunting of Hill House is being produced by Paramount TV and Steven Spielberg's Amblin TV. Flanagan is executive producing the series with Trevor Macy, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank.
