LOS ANGELES, Nov 29 — Luke Evans and Daniel Brühl have been confirmed as the lead names for TNT’s upcoming crime drama series The Alienist, reports Variety.
Set in 1896 New York, Brühl is set to play alienist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler — a doctor who studies deviant behaviours in an attempt to understand what turns a man into a murderer.
Evans will play John Moore, Laszlo’s friend and an illustrator for the New York Times.
Together the pair are recruited to investigate a series of murders of boy prostitutes in an attempt to catch one of the city’s first serial killers.
Welsh actor Evans is known for his work in The Hobbit trilogy and can soon be seen in Disney’s upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, whilst Brühl is known for his roles in Inglorious Basterds, Ron Howard’s Rush and Captain America: Civil War. — AFP-Relaxnews
