Broadway star Reeve Carney ("The Tempest") has scored a key role in Showtime's eight-episode drama series "Penny Dreadful".
The story revolves around famed monsters, together classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.
Carney will play Dorian Grey in a reprisal of Oscar Wilde's supernaturally attractive and decadent, yet somewhat isolated young hero.
Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett and Eva Green also star in the series which begins filming in October in London.
