Actor-singer Jesse McCartney has scored the final role in Fox’s drama pilot “Locke & Key” reports Deadline.
Set in a small Massachusetts village, the story follows a mother (Miranda Otto) and her three children who move into their family estate after her husband is murdered.
The vast estate has many areas only accessible by special keys, while a malevolent force within the house lures the husband’s killer to the town to finish off the rest of the family.
McCartney will play Ty, the eldest of the Locke children who is considered the male lead on the show. He was also the closest with his dad and carries a special guilt for his father’s death, so he isolates himself a bit by retreating into his music.
Sarah Bolger and Skylar Gaertner star as the other two kids.
