Amy Adams, Gillian Flynn HBO Series ‘Sharp Objects’ Adds Taylor John Smith to Cast

HBO’s Gillian Flynn adaptation “Sharp Objects” has added Taylor John Smith to the cast.

The straight-to-series eight-episode drama centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) who returns to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Eventually, she finds herself identifying with the girls too much.

Smith will play John Keene, who has barely slept since the murder of his 13-year-old sister, Natalie Keene. John’s sensitive and temperamental nature raises eyebrows and causes him to become a prime suspect in the murder investigation.

Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Madison Davenport, Eliza Scanlen and Elizabeth Perkins also star.

Marti Noxon is acting as show-runner and writer, with Jean-Marc Vallée (“Big Little Lies”) directing every episode. Flynn will write multiple episodes of the series.

Entertainment One is worldwide distributor.

Jason Blum, Charles Layton and Jessica Rhoades for Blumhouse Productions will all act as EPs, along with Vallee, Adams, Flynn and Noxon.

Blumhouse first optioned “Sharp Objects” in 2011.

Smith, one of the leads of NBC’s recent “Cruel Intentions” pilot, recently moved over to ICM Partners from CAA with his agent Joey Stanton.  He is also repped by Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
