Thomas Haden Church, Neve Campbell Join Twisted Metal TV Series
The streaming wars are getting exceptionally competitive these days, and the big streaming services have sought out an edge in the world of video games. Adapting popular game franchises for television and film had already proven to be a successful move by Netflix with its Castlevania anime series and live-action The Witcher show. Now all of the rival streaming services have been getting in on the action, with the Halo TV series breaking records at Paramount Plus. A live-action Twisted Metal TV series has promised to be Peacock’s big foray into gaming adaptations, and now the project has added Thomas Haden Church and Neve Campbell to its cast.
The first big cast addition to the live-action Twisted Metal adaptation was reported by Deadline last week. The project cast actor Thomas Haden Church to play Agent Stone, a stoic highway patrolman in the post-apocalyptic Divided States of America. Church rose to fame in the 1990s on the sitcom Wings and is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Sandman in Sam Raimi’s third Spider-Man movie. Church recently reprised the role of Sandman in the recent box office hit Spider-Man: No Way Home, making it a perfect time for him to jump into another beloved genre franchise.
Not long after the casting of Thomas Haden Church, Deadline also reported the Twisted Metal TV series had cast actress Neve Campbell as well. Campbell is set to serve in a recurring capacity as a character named Raven, though no additional details were given about the role. Campbell is best known for her work as the character Sidney Prescott in the Scream series of films, a role she also recently reprised earlier this year. Both Church and Campbell join Anthony Mackie and Stephanie Beatriz as the series’s lead characters John Doe and Quiet. With such a talented cast, this series is shaping up to be more delicious than Sweet Tooth’s ice cream.
