GRACEPOINT: Anna Gunn and Jacki Weaver Added to the American Version of BROADCHURCH

November 18, 2013 by  

GRACEPOINT, the Fox adaptation of BROADCHURCH, has added a few more big names to its cast: Jacki Weaver and BREAKING BAD’s Anna Gunn.

Take a look at what Fox has to say about the casting:

“Emmy Award-winning actress Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”) and two-time Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) will join Welsh BAFTA winner David Tennant (“Broadchurch,” “Dr. Who”) in the highly anticipated event series GRACEPOINT, set to premiere during the 2014-2015 season on FOX.

Gunn, who won an Emmy Award this year for her role as “Skyler White” on “Breaking Bad,” will play Detective ELLIE MILLER, a happily married wife and mother who is looking forward to a promised promotion. When the job goes to outsider Detective EMMETT CARVER (Tennant), Ellie is disgruntled – but her disappointment quickly fades in light of tragedy, and she must work her very first murder case with her prickly new partner. As the case progresses, she’ll have to look at her hometown, and those she cares about, through a different prism.

Weaver has been cast as SUSAN WRIGHT, a glowering, mysterious woman who is new to town and lives in the RV park, alone with her dog. She works various cleaning and odd jobs and prefers to remain anonymous, but has a dark history kept fiercely hidden.

Set in an American town, GRACEPOINT is the American version of the U.K.’s most-watched new drama of the year, “Broadchurch.” The gripping crime series follows the tragic and mysterious death of a young boy found dead on an idyllic beach surrounded by rocks and a jutting cliff-face, from where he may have fallen. Although the cause of his death remains unsolved, the picturesque seaside town where the tragedy occurred is at the heart of a major police investigation and a nationwide media frenzy.”

    Well. I watched Broadchurch and it was truly gripping. I hope they don’t follow the storyline to the letter because the murderer, while so greatly revealed and poignant for who is connected to that person…ultimately it has to be different. I don’t want to watch the same story with American accents.
