Deadline reports that Darren Mann is the latest name to be joining the cast of TNT pilot Let The Right One In, a vampire drama based on the best-selling novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist.
Let The Right One In will have us follow a young boy named Henry, who has long been tormented by his classmates, finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic vampire named Eli, who appears to be near his age, though her actual age is unknown. Lonely and friendless, Eli lands in an apartment building in Vermont and soon begins a strange friendship with Henry who has no idea what kind of creature he’s dealing with.
Darren Mann will be in a recurring role as Lukas, the alpha male of a cluster of teenage bullies who has made Henry his personal whipping boy and delights in tormenting him to the brink of unconsciousness. The script for the pilot will be penned by Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis, who will serve as an Executive Producer alongside Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements from Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes from Hammer Films.
