It's nigh impossible to believe at this point that we're still talking about Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX-adapted pilot 'The Strain' without an official series order, though it seems the vampire drama has continued casting for recurring parts all the same. '24' and recent 'Revolution' star Leslie Hope is the latest to catch 'The Strain,' but whom will she play if the FX series finally gets off the ground?

We thought Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX horror adaptation pilot 'The Strain' had delivered its biggest casting with yesterday's addition of 'Lord of the Rings' star Sean Astin, but today has proven us literally wrong. Hulking 'Pacific Rim' star Robert Maillet has signed on to play the vampire thriller's major villain, so can a series order from FX be far behind?

Seriously, how has FX not picked this up to series yet? Guillermo del Toro certainly has much to prove at the box office this weekend with the release of 'Pacific Rim,' but his upcoming FX pilot adaptation of 'The Strain' is proving monstrous in its own right. 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Goonies' star Sean Astin is the latest high-profile star to join the cast, but will he prove friend or foe?
