Stand In Casting Call for Cinemax Series Banshee
Cinemax has renewed its drama series, Banshee, for a fourth season and filming is set to begin in Pittsburgh, PA. Banshee was previously filmed in Charlotte, NC but since legislators drastically cut the state’s film tax credit producers found a new home for the project.
Banshee is the story of Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief, who takes on the identity of Banshee’s new sheriff. Hood finds it hard to stay on the right side of the law and soon finds himself implementing his own brand of justice while engaging in criminal pursuits. While Banshee appears to be a small, sleepy little town it is home to a myriad of criminal secrets.
The Cinemax drama was created by Jonathan Tropper (This Is Where I Leave You) and David Schickler (Banshee Origins).
The drama series stars Anthony Starr as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief; Ivana Milicevic as Carrie Hopewell, an ex-master thief turned devoted wife and mother; Ulrich Thomsen as Kai Proctor, a powerful and vicious drug lord; Hoon Lee as Job, a master hacker and thief.
Joining the cast of Banshee this season is Eliza Dushku. Dushku will take on the role of agent Veronica Dawson, a sexy and tough as nails but shockingly reckless FBI profiler who finds herself joining forces with Hood in order to hunt down a killer.
Cinemax has announced that several of the shows cast members have been have been bumped to season regulars, Chris Coy and Matthew Rauch. Chris Coy who portrays Calvin Bunker the brother of Kurt Bunker (the new deputy of Banshee) and Matthew Rauch plays Clay Burton, Kai Proctor’s bodyguard and close confidant.
