Under the Dome gets first cast member

January 15th, 2013 by bash Comments

The first actor to be cast in a TV adaptation of the Stephen King novel Under the Dome has been confirmed.

Colin Ford, the young actor best known for his role in Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, is the very first to sign on for the CBS series.

The show, set to debut on June 24 at 10/9c on CBS, has been adapted for the small screen by Brian K. Vaughan. Neils Arden Oplev, the director of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will helm the pilot.

The story tells of a small town in Maine which is cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible dome. With air, food and patience dwindling, societal norms within this town begin to break down.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
