TV News - Damnation - Killian Scott Cast as lead in USA PilotDeadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that Irish actor Killian Scott has been cast as the lead role in USA pilot Damnation, replacing Aden Young.

 

The pilot has been written and created by Tony Tost (Longmire) and is being directed by David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water). Damnation is being described as an epic saga of the secret history of the 1930’s American heartland, chronicling the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans and prophets. The pilot will have us follow Seth Davenport (Killian Scott), a man masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo. Focused on his mission, he is unaware that an industrialist tycoon has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creeley Turner to stop the uprising by any means necessary. But unbeknownst to those around them, these two men already share a secret bloody past.

 

Aden Young had left the pilot just days before filming was to commence, with sources claiming that his departure was due to creative differences. Killian Scott started shooting his scenes over the last few days.
