The new upcoming crime thriller Eyewitness just got some big casting news. James Paxton and Gil Bellows have joined Julianne Nicholson (Black Mass, Masters of Sex) and Tyler Young (Empire) in leading roles. Tattiawna Jones and Matt Murray are also joining the ensameble in recurring guest roles.
Paxton (Texas Rising) will play Lukas Hallenbeck, a teenage boy who appears to have it all, but deep down, is deeply conflicted about his sexuality. Things seem to get better for Lukas when he meets Philip (Young) until they witness a quadruple murder.
Bellows (Asenscion, 11.22.63) will star as Gabe, a small-town veterinarian whose compassion and warmth had helped to save his wife Helen (Nicholson) from her self-destructive cycle of living, but their marriage is put at risk due to the new pressures of her high-profile homicide case and fostering Philip.
As Kamilah, Jones is an apologetic FBI agent whose personal life is at odds with her professional goals. Murray will play the bright-eyed and optimistic deputy whose life is forever changed after the grisly murders.
Eyewitness is a crime-thriller based on the Norweigan series Øyevitne that will explore a crime from the point of view of the eyewitnesses.
