LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Now that "The Killing" has landed a new season, the AMC drama has also added a notable new cast member.
"Kinsey" star Peter Sarsgaard has joined the series in a recurring role, a spokeswoman for the network told TheWrap on Tuesday.
Sarsgaard will play Tom Seward, a death row inmate and lifelong convict who's been in and out of the justice system for violent crimes since he was 10. Born into poverty and crime, Seward never wants to appear weak, and views every interaction as a challenge that he must dominate.
Last month, AMC renewed the series for a third season, saying that Veena Sud would return as showrunner, writer and executive producer for the 12-episode season.
Actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are also returning for the third season, which begins production February 25 in Vancouver.
This will mark Sarsgaard's first recurring role on a television series.
