Like many hungry thriller fans, we positively devoured the premiere of HBO's Sharp Objects. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, the story follows a journalist named Camille who returns to her hometown to investigate a string of murders. Following the first episode, we were struck by one big thing: the recognizable cast! Sure, we're talking about Amy Adams and Chris Messina, who are reuniting after appearing in Julie and Julia together. But there's another very familiar face among the group that's a bit harder to place: Frank Curry, Camille's editor in St. Louis, Mo. If you were scratching your head trying to place where you've seen him, we're here to help.

Frank is played by Miguel Sandoval, a 66-year-old actor who hails from Washington DC. The most obvious place you may have seen him is on ABC's new Grey's Anatomy spinoff, Station 19.

If you still have yet to read Gillian Flynn's 2006 bestselling debut of the same name, we're here to give you a brief synopsis. The TV show might deviate from the novel - as plenty of books do - and the book definitely doesn't star Amy Adams, but here is what Sharp Objects the novel is all about.

The novel centers on Camille Preaker, a young journalist who writes for a small newspaper in Chicago. Her assignments are dark, often having to do with stories of abuse, neglect, and even murder.

‘Sharp Objects’ preview: What will Amy Adams uncover in episode 2 of HBO’s ominous limited series? [Watch]
“My demons are not remotely tackled. I just survive,” says Amy Adams in HBO‘s ominous preview for upcoming episodes of “Sharp Objects” (watch above). The eight-episode limited series premiered last Sunday, July 8, and it introduced the world — and the many demons — of investigative reporter Camille Preaker (Adams), who’s on a mission to track down a killer in her hometown. So what have we learned so far, and what’s to come?

In the premiere episode, titled “Vanish,” Camille reluctantly accepted an assignment from her editor in St. Louis: she would revisit the town of Wind Gap, where one girl was murdered and another has gone missing. Her sudden arrival upset her mother Adora (Patricia Clarkson), who doesn’t want Camille to stir up trouble in the community that might blow back on her.

But Camille set out to do her job despite her mother’s objections, interviewing the

Reminder That Amy Adams and Chris Messina Starred in Another Project Before Sharp Objects

Reminder That Amy Adams and Chris Messina Starred in Another Project Before Sharp Objects
Amy Adams and Chris Messina have a palpable chemistry in the debut episode of Sharp Objects alone. It's almost as if they've done this whole acting thing together before. Well, as it turns out, they have! Nearly a decade ago, the actors costarred in 2009's Julie & Julia, the heartwarming Nora Ephron-led movie about renowned chef Julia Child and author Julie Powell. In the movie, Messina portrays Julie's husband, Eric Powell. In the gritty HBO miniseries, Adams portrays Camille Preaker, while Messina portrays Detective Richard Willis.

After becoming friends following Julie & Julia, Messina said he was eager to work with Adams again. "I wanted another shot with Amy when I wasn't just eating her food and telling her how delicious it was," the actor told the New York Post. In fact, Adams advocated for Messina to be cast in Sharp Objects. Messina said, "I think she wanted someone around

The Missouri Heat in Sharp Objects Isn't the Only Thing Making Us Sweat - Meet Detective Willis

HBO's latest new series, Sharp Objects, is the closest onscreen adaptation to an image I've had in my head while reading a book maybe ever. That includes its selection of absolute hunk Chris Messina to play Richard Willis, a Kansas City detective sent to investigate a potential serial murder case in Wind Gap, Mo. When the show's main character, journalist Camille Preaker (Amy Adams), first runs into Detective Willis in the novel, I immediately felt that he'd be effortlessly handsome - despite being kind of an assh*le at first - which is exactly the kind of role Messina thrives in, let's be real.

If you, too, felt like your lust for Detective Willis came on stronger than a Missouri heatwave, it may be because you've crushed on Messina before. The 43-year-old has been acting for quite some time, starring most notably in The Mindy Project as Mindy's love interest,

Sharp Objects Isn't Filmed Where You Think It Is

Sharp Objects Isn't Filmed Where You Think It Is
Sharp Objects' opening scenes unfold in a neighborhood that may look familiar to many viewers. Its main street is lined with shops you might find in any small town: a pharmacy, a package store, a deli. Further out from the sleepy, all-American town center are broad, winding roads and whimsically tall trees. This is Wind Gap, Mo, where a young version of Amy Adams's character Camille Preaker is growing up. With her is a sister whose fate we start to understand as the first episode of the HBO series based on Gillian's Flynn's novel draws us into its twisted world.

But the Show Me State didn't get a visit from Adams or her esteemed fellow actors during filming in the fictional town of Wind Gap or for Adams's scenes in St. Louis, where she moves as an adult and works as a reporter. Instead, Sharp Objects took its production team to Barnesville,

After 1 Episode, Fans Are Ready to Nominate Sharp Objects For Every Emmy Possible

The following contains spoilers for HBO's latest thrilling series, Sharp Objects.

I hope Amy Adams has excellent hand-eye coordination, because fans will undoubtedly be throwing handmade Emmy award statuettes her way until the moment when she walks onstage to accept a real one for her work as troubled journalist Camille Preaker in Sharp Objects.

Rick Astley Loved the ‘Westworld’ Rickroll: ‘I Was Freaked’

Rick Astley Loved the ‘Westworld’ Rickroll: ‘I Was Freaked’
For the many fans who expressed seething anger after “Westworld” creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan “Rickrolled” them ahead of the HBO show’s Season 2 premiere, the man who inspired the trolling phenomenon had something else to say about it.

“I was freaked, because I love that show,” Rick Astley told Metro UK on Tuesday. “The fact the pair of them had to learn it. I was made up with that.”

Astley, whose hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” is used time and again to troll people by playing it when it’s totally unrelated to the topic at hand, is referring to a video released before the “Westworld” Season 2 premiere that features stars Evan Rachel Wood and Angela Sarafyan singing the song, juxtaposed with Jeffrey Wright waking up on a nondescript beach.

Castle Rock Review: Hulu's Eerie Anthology Gets Stephen King Right

Castle Rock Review: Hulu's Eerie Anthology Gets Stephen King Right
Hollywood’s track record with adapting the works of Stephen King is spotty at best: For every Carrie or It the movie, there’s a Dark Tower or It the miniseries. So Hulu was smart to adapt not just a single novel from the horror master, but all of them at once, creating a sort of Stephen King extended universe. The result: the new anthology Castle Rock (debuting Wednesday, July 25), an effectively eerie patchwork of King’s most famous stories that’s reminiscent of Fargo and American Horror Story, with genuine scares and a wealth of strong performances.
