Rust - Mark Pellegrino Joins Cast


Showtime’s forthcoming American Rust has added Mark Pellegrino (Dexter) as a series regular. He joins Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney in the drama series which is scheduled to begin production in Pittsburgh in late March.

Pellegrino will step into the role of Virgil Poe who is described as “wiry” and “hanging onto his good looks” — and he’s also unemployed. He plays the field but remains technically married to Grace Poe (Tierney), to whom he returns when he misses her bed or just needs a bed in general.

Based on Philipp Meyer’s celebrated debut novel of the same name, the family drama explores the tattered American dream through the eyes of a complicated and compromised chief of police Del Harris (Daniels) in a Rust Belt town in southwest Pennsylvania. When the woman he truly loves sees her son accused of murder, Harris is forced to decide what he’s willing to do to protect him.
