FX's 'The Strain': Guillermo del Toro Vampire Drama Conjures Up New Cast Photos


Everything we've seen thus far of FX's forthcoming adaptation of Guillermo del Toro's 'The Strain' has been right on point for the vampire drama thriller, though with its ongoing presence at SXSW, we're getting a better look at the cast, at least. Check out 'House of Cards' star Corey Stoll, along with 'Game of Thrones' David Bradley and more in brand-new photos from the series!

Courtesy of Yahoo TV, four new photos have emerged from the FX drama including {a wig-wearing) Stoll as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, Mia Maestro as Dr. Nora Martinez, 'Lord of the Rings' star Sean Astin as Jim Kent, and David Bradley as Professor Abraham Setrakian, who stepped in for John Hurt. These and more content from 'The Strain' will be on display at SXSW, as part of The Strain Transformation Station, a collection of custom-built "rejuvenation pods" with which to take 20-minute power-naps and observe content from the series.

Based on del Toro’s 2009 novel trilogy, ‘The Strain’ follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, a CDC operative who investigates a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself. FX’s adaptation will see a run of 13 episodes beginning in July 2014.

Also present among the cast are Regina King, Roger Cross (‘24‘), Leslie Hope, Robert Maillet (‘Pacific Rim‘), Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand (‘LOST‘), and Richard Sammel (‘Inglorious Basterds’). Former ‘LOST’ and current ‘Bates Motel‘ showrunner Carlton Cuse will helm FX’s adaptation from a screenplay by del Toro and novel co-writer Michael Hogan.

We've included the latest teaser above, but in the meantime, check out the characters of 'The Strain' in the photos below, and tell us what you want to see from FX's new Guillermo del Toro vampire drama this coming summer!
