NBC Casts Male Lead in 'Rosemary's Baby' Deadline
NBC has settled on a male lead for its four-hour miniseries "Rosemary's Baby." Deadline.com reports that the role has been given to “Suits” star Patrick J. Adams, who will play opposite Zoe Saldana.
The project has also cast Jason Isaacs, who will return to NBC after he starred in “Awake.” He will play the warlock and coven leader Roman Castevet, who was portrayed by Sidney Blackmer in the 1968 film version. Isaacs is also known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films.
The miniseries, which is based on the 1967 bestseller by Ira Levin, is about a young wife, Rosemary Woodhouse (Saldana), who moves with her husband (Adams) to a Paris apartment building with a creepy past. Rosemary becomes suspicious when she becomes pregnant and her husband and neighbors act in odd ways.
