The Secret Circle's Chris Zylka has joined the cast of the premium cable network's adaptation of Tom Perrotta's The Leftovers, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on the book of the same name, The Leftovers takes place as the Rapture happens -- but not quite like it’s supposed to. The drama, from Damon Lindelof, tells the story of the people who didn’t make the cut and a world that will never be the same.
Theroux will play Kevin Garvey, the police chief and father of two who's trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in a world that is starting to completely reject the notion. Brenneman will portray Laurie Garvey, a woman who has left her entire life behind to join a mysterious cult and cuts off ties with her husband and children.
Zylka will play Tom, Laurie and Tom's estranged son who has recently dropped out of college and taken refuge with a mysterious guru.
