Lovecraft Country - Courtney B. Vance, Aunjanue Ellis & Elizabeth Debicki Joins HBO's Horror Anthology

Share on Reddit

Courtney B. Vance (American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson), Aunjanue Ellis (Quantico) and Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) have joined the cast of HBO's Lovecraft Country from Misha Green, Jordan Peele & J.J. Abrams. The upcoming drama project notes, per Deadline, that Ellis and Debicki have series regular roles whilst Vance is recurring on the drama as a result of his co-lead role in FX comedy pilot Compliance (co-starring Mary-Louise Parker). Vance plays Atticus' Uncle George, Ellis plays George's wife and Debicki plays the only daughter of Samuel Braithwhite.

Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Black (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback

Vance is George Black, who has always been more like a father to Atticus (Majors). Warm, funny, and well read, he was the first to introduce Atticus to the wonderful and strange world of pulp novels. As the publisher of the “Safe Negro Travel Guide” he’s been on enough adventures to understand there’s no place like home.

Ellis is Hippolyta Black, George’s wife, Atticus’s aunt, and a star gazer. She’s been a housewife most of her life with dreams of getting into some adventures of her own, despite her husband’s misgivings. Her itch for adventure will eventually, literally and figuratively, take her to the stars and beyond.

Debicki portrays Christina Braithwhite, the only daughter of Samuel Braithwhite, the leader of a secret order calling themselves the “Sons of Adam.” She’s gone to great lengths to earn her father’s respect, to no avail. She’s going to pave her own path to power, and she’s going to use Atticus and his family to do it.
