Kevin Zegers Joins TV Event Series 'Gracepoint'

Kevin Zegers has landed a gig in a new TV event series, according to THR.

The 29-year-old actor has joined Fox’s Gracepoint as a series regular. The eight-part series “follows the events and investigation that unfold in the sleepy seaside town of Gracepoint after the tragic and mysterious death of a young boy.”

The description continues, “Though the cause of his death remains unsolved — he was found on an idyllic beach surrounded by rocks and a jutting cliff face — the picturesque town where the tragedy occurred is at the heart of a major police investigation and a nationwide media frenzy.”

Kevin will play the character of Owen Burke, “a handsome, clever and extremely laid back young reporter on the local town newspaper.”

Gracepoint is set to begin shooting in January for a 2014 release.

    @Debs: Well they are making an Amercian version of it. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was it.

    I have no hope in the remake. The British version got me hooked and made me cry my eyes out in the finale.

    *Yes, the original writer and David Tennant are both involved in the the remake, it just won’t be the same.
