Excuse me while I do a little bit of embarrassing Harry Potter related fan-girling, but Tom Felton has been cast in a fantastic new role in the Neil LaBute DirectTV drama, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I love to see actors step out of their regular roles and move into new areas of their careers, and this time Felton will be on this side of the pond acting for a television show with an amazing cast and crew. Neil LaBute’s upcoming drama, Full Circle, has cast a group of talented actors to give life to his 10-episode series about a group of 11-people whose lives are all intertwined.
David Boreanaz (Bones), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Billy Campbell (The Killing), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee), Devon Gearhart (The Wait), Noah Silver (The Borgias), Ally Sheedy (Welcome to the Rileys), Cheyenne Jackson (Behind the Candelabra) and Robin Weigert (Sons of Anarchy) round of the amazing cast.
The drama will follow a unique format: each episode will centre on a conversation between two characters in a restaurant. One of the character’s storyline will be carried over into the next episode, and so on with a new character introduced each time, until the final episode. Felton will be playing an exchange student from England, who is in love with a woman named Bridgette (Kelly); Bridgette’s is married to a man named Stanley (McMahon); Stanley has a named client Jace (Boreanaz), a famous comic known for his outlandish behavior; Chan’dra (Palmer), is someone whose life was irrevocably altered as a result of a joke that Jace took too far; Cliff (Gearhart), is a classmate of Chan’dra ‘s, whom she secretly has a crush on; Cliff’s father is Trent (Campbell), whose wife is Trisha (Walsh); Peter (Jackson), is an aspiring singer who intrudes on a special night between Trent and Trisha; Robbie (Silver), plays Trisha’s student who has an unusual connection to his teacher, and to his mother Celeste (Sheedy), with whom he shares an unnerving bond. Sound confusing?
The final episode of the series will bring all of the characters together, along with Weigert, in what is being called “an explosive ending” that will change the course all their lives. Does this sound interesting to you?
