Who stars in The Twilight Zone?
Jordan Peele is the series narrator and host. He also serves as the show’s executive producer.
Peele told Variety he was reluctant to take on The Twilight Zone at first.
He explained: “Why would I ever jump into the most established, pristine shoes in all of the genre? I could rip ‘Twilight Zone’ off and call it something different and not be compared to Rod Serling. So I stepped away from it. And then several months later I got another call.
“The realization, for me, was that it was an opportunity to attempt to continue with Serling’s mission.
“If we approach it without ego and sort of bow to Serling, that will hopefully suffice for our fellow ‘Twilight Zone’ fans but also bring back a show that I think is needed right now. Because it’s a show that has always helped us look at ourselves, hold a mirror up to society.”
Sanaa Lathan and Adam Scott will appear in guest starring roles.
Lathan is best known for her role as Robyn in The Best Man and its sequels and Scott for his role as Ben Wyatt in Parks and Recreation.
Deadline Hollywood reported that Lathan will star in an episode titled “Rewind” and Scott will appear in “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” a remake of the original series episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”.
No other cast members have been revealed so far.
