One of the books that I want to read ASAP is Stephen King’s THE OUTSIDER. Sure I’ve been saying that since the book was released last year, but I’m serious this time: THE OUTSIDER will be the next book I read… after I finished re-reading Thomas Harris’ HANNIBAL. And I’d better get to it soon as there’s a high-profile adaptation coming soon starring Ben Mendelsohn (ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY) with Jason Bateman (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) directing the first two episodes and executive producing.
And today we have word that Cynthia Erivo (BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE), Paddy Considine (HOT FUZZ), Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vázquez, Jeremy Bobb, and Marc Menchaca are set as series regulars and Hettienne Park and Michael Esper are set to recur. Erivo will play Holly Gibney, Camp is Howie Gold, Winningham is Jeannie Anderson, Considine is Claude Bolton, Nicholson plays Mercy Maitland, Vázquez plays Yunis Sablo, Bobb is Alec Pelley, Menchaca plays Jack Hoskins, and Park and Esper will recur as Tomika Collins and Bill Samuels.
These names mean nothing to me. I have not read the book.
