Robert Kirkman Outcast Madelyn Deutch M C Gainey Hoon Lee

Outcast, the Cinemax exorcism thriller from Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, ends its first season tomorrow but it's already gearing up for the second. Three actors are joining the show for season 2, which has begun production in South Carolina.

First up is M. C. Gainey, who is best known for playing Big John Brittle in DJANGO UNCHAINED. He has also appeared in SIDEWAYS, Lost, and TANGLED of all things. He'll be playing Bob, "a hermit who operates the junkyard on the edge of Rome. His brooding and eccentric demeanor conceals ties to Rome’s dark past."

Next to join is Madelyn Deutch, who is less well-known, but has appeared in a variety of titles with awesome names like CHRISTMAS TWISTER and MAYOR CUPCAKE. She will be playing Dakota, "a free spirit who embraces an unconventional form of Christianity. Her perspective clashes with Reverend Anderson’s — and she ultimately reveals a knowledge of what it is that has befallen Rome."

The third new cast member is Hoon Lee (pictured above), who has a role on the Cinemax series Banshee as Job, along with playing Splinter in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. He will play Dr. Kenneth Park, "Chief of staff and an accomplished surgeon at Rome’s hospital, Dr. Park has his own cryptic agenda concerning Kyle."

Outcast follows:

Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit), a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. In the second season, the exploration and mystery of what lies behind the supernatural manifestations and why they are drawn to Kyle continues. What Kyle has uncovered along the way could bring the end of life on Earth as we know it.

The final episode of the season airs tomorrow, August 12th, on Cinemax at 10PM.
