Dennis Hopper to star in 'Crash'

Clare Carey also cast in Starz's adaptation

Dennis Hopper has been tapped to star in "Crash," Starz Entertainment's series adaptation of the feature film. Clare Carey also will co-star.

"Crash," from Lionsgate, is a 13-episode series featuring a different cast of characters than the film. Hopper will play Ben, a veteran maverick music producer looking for his last big score. The actor's most recent starring series role was NBC's "E-Ring."

Carey ("Jericho") will play Christine, a frustrated mom who is married to a successful pre-bust real estate developer. Hopper and Carey join the previously cast Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee and Arlene Tur.

Production has begun in Albuquerque, N.M., with additional filming to take place in and around Los Angeles, for an October premiere. Sanford Bookstaver ("Jericho") is directing the first episode.
