Mark Pellegrino Cast as Lead on The Returned

by at . Comments

Mark Pellegrino has bounced back already from The Tomorrow People.

The veteran actor (Lost, Supernatural, Being Human) has been cast as a lead in A&E’s The Returned, 10-episode drama that reunites Pellegrino with executive producer Carlton Cuse.

The Returned is an adaption of a French series by the same name. It centers on a small town whose deceased residents suddenly come back to life.

Look for Pellegrino to portray Jack, the father of twin girls, one of whom comes back to life after passing away in a school-bus accident four years earlier.

Pellegrino is coming off a run as Dr. Jedikiah Price on The Tomorrow People, which was canceled by The CW this month after a one-season run.

If It's like the original, it blows Resurrection out of the water.
