Harold Perrineau to Produce ‘Case 219’
Harold Perrineau is safely off the island and away from Lost so has signed to executive produce and star in a drama Case 219. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the independent production will be based on Walter Dean Myers’ Shooter. The trade says the 2005 novel “centers on the aftermath of a high school shooting from the perspective of three misfit teens.”
The cast will include Evan Ross, Leven Rambin and Taylor Nichols, and most likely Leslie Hope.
Since completing his role on the ABC hit series, he has completed similar duties on The Killing Jar, costarring with Michael Madsen. As an actor, he will next be seen in ABC;’s forthcoming The Unusuals.
Myers is a well regarded young adult author of fiction and on-fiction titles. His Fallen Angels made the American Library Association’s list of frequently challenged books, due to rough language and its depiction of the Vietnam War. He released a sequel, Sunrise Over Fallujah, earlier this year.
