Guillermo del Toro’s and Chuck Hogan’s THE STRAIN has cast another recurring character. Regina King, perhaps best known for her role in SOUTHLAND, will play Ruby Wain. Wain has the unenviable task of managing the philandering rock star Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy). A shrewd and tough business woman, she has a constant battle on her hands keeping Bolivar in check. Then things get really bad!

Also cast as a recurring character on the series is Melanie Merkosky as Jim Kent’s (Sean Astin) wife Sylvia, who is suffering from cancer.

THE STRAIN is a high-concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called on to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.

Expect THE STRAIN to hit screens next July.
