Jason Patric is following in Matt Dillon's footsteps.
Patric is joining Wayward Pines Season 2 as Dr. Theo Yedlin, a surgeon whose skills will prove invaluable to the residents of Wayward Pines.
Wayward Pines is based upon the books by Blake Crouch, but Season 2 will be the first installment to place outside the universe he has written inside of them.
Yedlin will be new to Wayward Pines, recently awakened and finding his way around the creepy town as Dillon's character did in Wayward Pines Season 1.
Only this time, the First Generation is ruling in a completely new and iron-fisted way.
It's in the middle of a rebellion between the townspeople and the First Generation that Yedlin will try to find a way to preserve the endangered human race.
“Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor,” said Executive Producer, M. Night Shyamalan. “I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of Wayward Pines.”
