Vincent D’Onofrio has been cast in CBS All Access’ upcoming true-crime drama “Interrogation.”
D’Onofrio, coming off his multi-season role as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin on Netflix’s “Daredevil,” joins a cast that includes David Strathairn, Peter Sarsgaard Kyle Gallner and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
D’Onofrio plays an Internal Affairs officer who ends up becoming Kyle Gallner’s character’s biggest ally, an experience that calls his faith in the criminal justice system into question.
Co-created by Anders Weidemann and John Mankiewicz, “Interrogation” is based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. Each episode is structured around an interrogation taken directly from the real police case files. The first nine episodes of the series will be available to watch in any order, with the conclusive season finale to be released at a later date.
Strathairn will play a father whose settled, suburban life is blown to pieces when his 17-year-old son is charged, convicted and sent to prison. Sarsgaard will play the detective on the case.
Produced by CBS Television Studios, Weidemann and Mankiewicz will serve as executive producers alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate. Ernest Dickerson will direct six out of the series’ 10 episodes and will also serve as executive producer. Patrick Cady will also direct.
