“The Haunting of Hill House” star Oliver Jackson-Cohen has joined the upcoming follow-up “The Haunting of Bly Manor” in a leading role.
Jackson-Cohen played the family screw-up and hopeless addict Luke Crain in the first season of the horror anthology series which was based very loosely on Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House”. In the new one he’s taking on the role of Peter, a man dubbed only “a charming fellow”.
The new season will adapt Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw” and follows a governess who takes care of two very unusual children. Victoria Pedretti also returns from the first season as the governess this time around.
Additional character details are being kept under wraps. Jackson-Cohen was recently cast as the lead in Leigh Whannell’s “The Invisible Man” which is about to begin filming in Sydney.
