cast-remarAnother Rover has been cast!

The Shannara Chronicles welcomes Dexter alum James Remar.

Remar will be playing the role of Cephelo, the leader of the Rovers and father of Eretria, a man whose cunning will pit him directly against Wil Ohmsford.

Here is the excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter article:

Remar is playing Cephelo, the leader of the Rovers, who roam the Four Lands.

Remar played Dexter Morgan’s (Michael C. Hall) father Harry for eight seasons of Showtime’s Dexter from 2006-2013. He also plays former CIA agent Syd on NBC’s State of Affairs, and is currently filming the feature February, a drama starring Emma Roberts. Other credits include FX’s Wilfred and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

I have long admired Remar’s work. I don’t mind admitting I first remember him in Sex in the City but I really enjoyed his role in Dexter and I think his casting here is a great one. He has played many shifty and mysterious characters during his career and that certainly fits Cephelo. Not to mention he is a hell of an actor!

The Shannara Chronicles continues to be filmed. More news when we can post it!

Stay tuned!
