Anyone who’s been losing sleep worrying about Hugh Dancy’s post-”Hannibal” career can relax. The actor has been cast in Hulu original drama “The Way,” the streaming service announced today.
Dancy will join Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) and Michelle Monaghan (“Source Code”) in the intense family drama from Jason Katims (“Parenthood”). Dancy will play Cal Roberts, described in press materials as the charismatic leader of “The Way,” a controversial movement with which Monaghan’s Sarah and Paul’s Eddie become embroiled.
“The Way” was created for Hulu by Universal Television and Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions. Creator Jessica Goldberg will write and executive-produce the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions. The series will begin filming in September.
