HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Adds Liv Tyler to Damon Lindelof’s Star-Studded Cast
Though still only in the pilot stages, HBO’s forthcoming Damon Lindelof-produced adaptation of ‘The Leftovers‘ has added yet another prolific star to its cast, as it’s signed Liv Tyler for a regular role. She joins a cast that includes Justin Theroux, former ‘Doctor Who‘ Christopher Eccleston and more, but who will the Aerosmith daughter play in her first major TV role?
Deadline reveals that Tyler will take the series regular role of Meg, a young woman on the brink of getting married, but searching for an escape. Consequently, Meg becomes targeted for recruitment by members of a mysterious cult known as the “Guilty Remnant.”
Headed by actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ follows those left behind on Earth after the biblical Rapture — those not chosen to be taken up to Heaven. The people of the small town must begin to rebuild their lives after the sudden and mysterious disappearance of over 100 people. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot will be directed by Peter Berg.
Also among the cast are Christopher Eccleston, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd and Amanda Warren, but what do you think? Does Liv Tyler’s presence rapture your interest in ‘The Leftovers?’
