FLANNERY JOINS THE DEAD ZONE
Anthony Michael Hall, the star and co-producer of the TV series THE DEAD ZONE, tells Fango that Sean Patrick Flannery (YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS) is joining the cast of THE DEAD ZONE for the season finale as Greg Stillson in an episode entitled 'Destiny.'
Stillson, the enigmatic politician from the original Stephen King novel and played by Martin Sheen in the David Cronenberg film, will be a recurring role into the second season of the highly-rated new show and perhaps longer as his campaign for office continues and Johnny finds out more about Stillson's dark future.
Of the show's overnight success, Hall says, 'I'm happy with it, definitely. It's nice to know that people are enjoying it. Stephen King has an enormous fanbase. The network did a fantastic job and the writing is really good. I've been really impressed with all thirteen of these (first season) scripts.'
