Jake Weber (Medium, Dawn Of The Dead) has landed a series regular role on AMC‘s drama series Hell On Wheels, from Entertainment One, Endemol USA and Nomadic Pictures. Weber, repped by Paradigm and Framework, will play Harlan Fell, a former military doctor in the Union Army, sent West by Ulysses S. Grant. A respectable-seeming guy, Fell dreams of parlaying his medical degree into an empire, and will stop at nothing to get it. Weber recently completed a three-episode arc on Fox’s The Following. His feature credits include White House Down and The Haunting Of Molly Hartley. Hell On Wheels returns this summer for an expanded 13-episode fourth season.
David Costabile (Breaking Bad, Damages) has been cast in USA Network‘s six-episode event series DIG, an action adventure drama from Heroes creator Tim Kring and Gideon Raff. It centers on Peter (Jason Isaacs), an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem who, while investigating a murder of a woman archaeologist, uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making that threatens to change the course of history. Costabile will play Ted Billingham, an avuncular leader of a reclusive religious cult. Costabile is repped by Innovative, Gartner/Green, and attorney Neil Meyer at SMGSB.
