CBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced that Eion Bailey, Katherine McNamara and Hamish Linklater have joined the cast of its original limited event series The Stand.
It is, of course, based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name.
They join previously announced cast members James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Henry Zaga, Brad William Henke, Alexander Skarsgård and Whoopi Goldberg.
Eion Bailey will play Teddy Weizak, a superflu survivor and member of the body crew,
