The actress is cast opposite Matt Dillon on the show based on the novel of the same name
Matt Dillon's character, Secret Service agent Ethan Burke will find a likeminded townie on Fox's limited series "Wayward Pines."
Beverly is described as "warm and approachable," though she doesn't mince words.
Lewis is best known for her many movie credits, including "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," "Natural Born Killers" and "From Dusk Till Dawn." But, she recently starred on the shortlived NBC series, "The Firm."
Aside from Dillon, she joins already announced cast members Shannyn Sossamon, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones and Melissa Leo on "Wayward Pines," which is based on Blake Crouch's novel series of the same the name.
The series, billed as "an intense, mind-bending thriller," follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Dillon), who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Idaho, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions.
Lewis is represented by UTA, Troika and Untitled Entertainment.
