Josh Bowman To Play Jack the Ripper

Following hot on the heels of “UnReal” and “Harry Potter” actor Freddie Stroma scoring the heroic lead role, ABC’s time travel thriller pilot “Time After Time” has cast its villain.

“Revenge” star Josh Bowman has scored the role of John Stevenson, a brilliant and charismatic surgeon who lives a double life as the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper.

Stroma plays author H.G. Wells who, in this fantasy tale, travels forward from Victorian to contemporary times to catch ‘Jack’ who has also fled to the present day. The series is based on the novel of the same name which was previously adapted for the screen in 1979.
