ABC Family's 'Stitchers' Adds C. Thomas Howell and Henry Rollins (Exclusive)
ABC Family's Stitchers has sewn up two new cast members.
Henry Rollins (Sons of Anarchy) and C. Thomas Howell (Grimm, Southland) are joining the paranormal drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The network's first procedural, Stitchers focuses on Kirsten (Emma Ishta, Manhattan Love Story, Black Box), a young recruit at a secretive government agency who gets "stitched" into the minds of the newly deceased, allowing her to solve crimes with their memories.
Rollins will guest star as Barbiero, a security whiz who knows Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) from a previous job and learns that the new gig is a demanding one. Howell joins in the recurring role of Daniel, Kirsten's mysterious former acquaintance. Both actors are set to appear later in the first season.
Creator Jeffrey A. Schechter (Overruled!) will executive produce with Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken. Rollins is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Rollins Management, while Howell is with Innovative Artists and Radius Entertainment.
Stitchers premieres Tuesday, June 2 at 9 p.m. on ABC Family.
