Banshee’s Antony Starr has booked a major role opposite Justin Chatwin and Megan Ketch in American Gothic, CBS’ upcoming murder mystery summer drama series from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios.

Created by Corinne Brinkerhoff, American Gothic centers on a prominent Boston family that is attempting to redefine itself in the wake of a chilling discovery that links their recently deceased patriarch to a string of murders spanning decades — amid the mounting suspicion that one of them may have been his accomplice. Starr will play Garrett, the firstborn son of a prominent Boston political family. He inexplicably left town 17 years ago and returns home at the news of his father’s heart attack.

Starr, repped by Paradigm, Auckland Actors (NZ), and Impression Entertainment, has played the lead role of Lucas Hood in Cinemax’s Banshee for four seasons. His film work includes feature Wish You Were Here.
