Peter Sarsgaard Joins Season Three of The Killing

FileSarsgaard_at_WUSTL_2007The Killing‘s highly unexpected third season just got an injection of star power.  Peter Sarsgaard will be joining the show as Tome Seward, described as  “a death row inmate for whom the clock is ticking down. A lifelong convict born into poverty and crime, Seward’s been in and out of the system for violent crimes since he was 10. Not ever wanting to appear weak, every interaction is a challenge, and one he must dominate.”

Sarsgaard, in case you need reminding, is a successful big-screen actor with roles in films like Shattered Glass, Jarhead, and The Green Lantern.  The Killing marks the first time he has appeared as a regular character on a television show.

The fact that Sarsgaard was attracted to the part may say something about the quality of the scripts, or so we can hope.  There is very little actually known about the third season except for this scrap: “A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.”

AMC/Netflix are producing after AMC originally cancelled the series.  No premiere date for season 3 has been announced.
