We told you back in January about the Showtime series Penny Dreadful, a psychosexual horror series set in Victorian England and featuring some of the iconic horror figures of those times. Happily, three of those roles have now been cast.
Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) (above left) will be playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein, according to Deadline. Dorian Gray, the man whose transgressions, according to the original Oscar Wilde story, never take a toll on his own handsome features but turn his portrait hideous, will be played by Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) (above center). A third, “unnamed mysterious character of haunting intensity” will be played by Rory Kinnear (Quantum of Solace) (above right).
