Orphan Black star Kevin Hanchard has booked a supporting role opposite Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks in Sky Atlantic’s miniseries Tin Star. The crime drama takes place in a remote mountain town filled with migrant oil workers. At the heart of it is a police chief forced to confront a rising tide of crime, in so doing becoming a victim of an unspeakable act of violence. The aftershock of that event leads the police chief on a self-destructive path, culminating in the appearance of a ruthless alter ego. Hanchard will play Father Gregoire. Hanchard currently plays the lead role of Detective Art Bell on BBC America’s Orphan Black, and he recently recurred on FX’s The Strain, SyFy’s The Expanse, and DirecTV’s Rogue. Hanchard is repped by AMI Artist Management and The Green Room.
Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer) has booked a recurring role on TNT and Channel 4’s Foreign Bodies. Created by actor-writer Tom Basden, the comedic drama centers on a group of young adults venturing across China, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. The series is scheduled to launch on E4 in early 2017, followed later in the year by its U.S. debut on TNT. Garofalo will play Sam, a seasoned traveler who, after 20 years working in tourism and visiting exotic places, has very much had her fill. Cynical, streetwise and permanently unimpressed, Sam is a counterpoint to the excitable, wide-eyed young travelers she meets, and she’s quick to dispel them of their romantic and idiotic assumptions about the world and the value of travel.
