Jane joins Castle Rock & Sea Oak!

Suburgatory alumna Jane Levy is set to co-star opposite André Holland in Hulu’s upcoming psychological-horror drama series Castle Rock from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King. Also boarding the show in a key role is an actress closely associated with King’s cinematic world, Carrie star Sissy Spacek.

Levy has signed a one-year deal for Castle Rock, and she also has been tapped to co-star opposite Glenn Close in the Amazon supernatural comedy pilot Sea Oak, written by George Saunders based on his short story.

Set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock, from from Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, is named after the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his novels, novellas and short stories. Per the producers, it combines 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.

Levy plays Jackie, the death-obsessed self-appointed historian of Castle Rock.

The project reunites Levy with Warner Bros. TV, which cast her in her breakout role as the lead in the ABC comedy series Suburgatory. Levy is repped by Gersh and Sloane Offer.

Just Jared Exclusive Interview & Shoot!

Jane Levy can be seen in theaters this weekend in the horror film Don’t Breathe, but first you can check out her JJ Portrait Session and interview! The 26-year-old actress is re-teaming with her Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez for the new flick, which has been receiving some stellar reviews and currently holds a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Other projects that you might recognize Jane from include her ABC comedy series Suburgatory and the movie Fun Size. She will soon be seen in Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival series.

Just because Jane is becoming a horror movie vet doesn’t mean she is safe from scares in real life, especially when she has to sleep at home alone. “I’m always convinced someone is lurking in my bushes. And when I’m afraid in real life I become paralyzed… and breathless,” she said.

Jane Levy Interview – JustJared.com Exclusive:

Just Jared: What drew you to do Don’t Breathe?

Jane Levy: I was proud of the work that Fede and I did together on Evil Dead and I wanted to see what else we could do!

JJ: What was the most memorable scene to film?

JL: So many to choose from. Probably the most fun scene for me to shoot was when I’m falling headfirst down the air shaft. I was strung up by my feet and held a black magic camera in my hands pointed at my face and they would drop me about 7 feet. I only wish it were a larger drop! But I guess they couldn’t afford to risk dropping their actress on her noggin.

‘Office Uprising’: Jane to Slice and Dice Zombies!

From demons to zombies, Jane Levy, who starred in Evil Dead and reteamed with director Fede Alvarez for Sony’s A Man in the Dark, will battle the undead in Office Uprising, Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report. Levy joins previously announced Australian actor Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, Maleficent, Oculus) in the zombie actioneer directed by Steven C. Miller (Aggression Scale, Under the Bed, Submerged, Marauders) from a script written by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble.

“Office Uprising is set inside one of the world’s leading arms manufacturers where a substance is slipped into the employees’ drinks by the board of directors that supposedly makes them work more efficiently. Due to a slacker within the company, though, they are fed the wrong formula and start turning into homicidal maniacs — leaving the slacker needing to step up his game to rescue himself and his friends from the growing zombie plague inside the company compound.”

The Exchange is selling Office Uprising at the EFM in Berlin.
