Amazon and Channel 4’s upcoming anthology series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is rounding out its cast.
Mireille Enos, Greg Kinnear and Steve Buscemi have boarded the sci-fi drama, which consists of 10 stand-alone episodes. Enos and Kinnear will star in “Father Thing,” while Buscemi will be in “Crazy Diamond.”
The Sony Pictures Television-produced series — which counts Bryan Cranston, Outlander’s Ron Moore and Sneaky Pete’s Michael Dinner as executive producers — was picked up by the streamer in February.
The trio join previously announced castmembers Cranston, Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner), Jack Reynor (Jungle Book), Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange) and Geraldine Chapline (A Monster Calls).
Kinnear will star as the caring, easygoing father in “Father Thing,” an episode written and directed by Dinner that explores a world under attack by aliens. Enos (The Catch) will star opposite Kinnear as a mother who is being protected by son Charlie (played by Billion’s Jack Gore), who is the first to realize that humans are being replaced by dangerous monsters.
On this week’s podcast, the actress Mireille Enos reads “A Child of Two Worlds,” an essay about a mother who, after two Western medicine-assisted deliveries, decides to give birth without it.
This week’s episode of The Catch is up on the Mireille Enos Fan Gallery.

This week, Beers catches up with The Catch star Mireille Enos, who breaks down the season 2 premiere, in which Grey’s Anatomy alum T.R. Knight makes his return to Shondaland as Tommy, the brother of Alice Vaughan. Enos also teases huge complications ahead for Alice, as well as what’s next in this new working dynamic between Alice and Margot (Sonya Walger).
Alice and Benjamin are in love and fully committed to each other this season. What does that do to the romantic cat-and-mousecapades that this show was built on?
Instead of conspiring against each other, Alice and Benjamin now find that the world is conspiring against them, so it’s still hard for them to live life as a normal couple. Pete and I always wanted this show to be more like Moonlighting, with our characters fighting bad guys together. With lots of personal squabbles, of course.
