Watch 'Walking Dead' Star Steven Yeun in First Movie Role in 'I Origins' Trailer (Video)

“Boardwalk Empire's” Michael Pitt co-stars as a scientist who discovers the eyes might actually be the window to the soul

“Walking Dead” star Steven Yeun will make his big screen debut this summer when Fox Searchlight releases “I Origins,” a supernatural drama exploring the connection between spirituality and science.

The first trailer doesn't make it seem like he has a huge part, though, as Michael Pitt (“Boardwalk Empire”) takes the lead.  Pitt plays a molecular scientist who goes on a journey through love and life to discover that the eyes really may be the window to the soul.
