‘The Hunger Games’ actor Wes Bentley has closed on a role in Ryan Murphy’s new HBO pilot ‘Open’. Bentley, who has done some television roles in the past, is known best for his work in film where he most recently appeared as Seneca Crane in the first installment of the Hunger Games franchise.
‘Open’ is one of Murphy’s newest projects, which he will be writing himself along with help from ‘Dexter’ co-executive producer Lauren Gussis. The pilot, which is being called a provocative look at human relationships and sexuality, will follow multiple characters as they explore the complex and evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.
Bentley has landed the role of Evan Foster, an arrogant and attractive guy who always has a lot to say about his theories on human sexuality, to every else’s dismay and general annoyance. This role will be a bit of a reunion for Bentley and HBO, Bentley having starred in the networks failed pilot ‘Tilda’ in 2010.
‘Open’ is ‘Glee’ creator Murphy’s second ongoing project with HBO, the network having also picked up his adaptation of the Larry Kramer play ‘The Normal Heart’.
