Utopia - Dan Byrd & Cory Michael Smith to Co-Star in Gillian Flynn's Amazon Series



Dan Byrd (Cougar Town) and Cory Michael Smith (Gotham) have been cast to co-star in Amazon's Utopia adaptation written by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects) per Deadline. Byrd and Smith will co-star opposite Rainn Wilson and Sasha Lane.

Utopia follows a group of young adults who meet online that are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel. Within the comic’s pages, they discover the conspiracy theories that may actually be real and are forced into the dangerous, unique and ironic position of saving the world.

Byrd will play Ian. Ian went to an online college, works in a soul-robbing job and lives in Canton, Ohio with his grandma in a small apartment. Craving a more exciting life outside his online/virtual world, he embarks on a mission to uncover the secrets of the graphic novel, Utopia, which is also driven by his crush on fellow graphic novel fan, Becky.

Smith will play Thomas Christie, bright and ambitious, Thomas works under his biotech scientist father at Christie Laboratories. He becomes tasked with tracking down the only copy of the much sought after graphic novel, Utopia, for less than benevolent reasons.
