Hammer's next film, The Quiet Ones has landed a leading man that should be familiar to genre fans: Jared Harris (or, as my husband refers to him, "the best actor you see in everything but don't know his name"). We'll tell you more after the jump.
Harris will play 'an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment to create a poltergeist from negative human energy' in the film, written by Tom DeVille and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2). Harris can currently be seen as a regular on Mad Men and as the delightfully diabolical Robert David Jones on Fringe. Other genre films you may recognize him from include The Ward, Sherlock Holmes, and Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
Shooting on The Quiet Ones begins this June.
