Andre Holland, one of the stars of the incredible Moonlight, has landed a new role. The actor will take the lead in Hulu's new psychological-horror drama Castle Rock, Variety reports.

The anthology series is set in Stephen King's multiverse, as Castle Rock is named after the fictional town in the author's native Maine that is prominently featured in many of his novels, novellas and short stories. Holland is set to play Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in the town. The producers claim the show will "combine the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland."

Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason are the show's co-writers, and are also executive producers alongside J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Beyond, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer. 

Along with Moonlight, Holland has starred in Selma, 1600 Penn, The Knick and American Horror Story: Roanoke. The actor will also appear in Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time, which premieres on March 9, 2018. Castle Rock is set to go into production sometime this year.
