Kevin Bacon, our Graboid king and overlord has snagged some costars to accompany him in Perfection. For those unaware of the Tremors TV series, first off, how dare you?! Secondly, here are the current details:
The TV series will pick up 25 years after the original film left off. The killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed the small town of Perfection, Nevada 25 years ago are back and the town's only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon) who beat them once, but to do it again, he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex. The movie revolved around natives of a the town who have to defend themselves against strange underground creatures that are killing them one by one.
So, who is joining the Six Degrees legend in his quest to combat the impending Graboid infestation:
Shiloh Fernandez is set for the role of “Nico Garza,” who has been killing time in Perfection, working in Earl’s Graboid Waste Gobbling company, waiting for the right moment to split. The last thing he wants is to turn out like Val (Kevin Bacon), who’s stayed stuck in nowheresville all these years.
Fernandez also had a recurring role on the hit drama “Jericho” and on the USA drama series FALLING WATER. He can now be seen in a recurring role on the series “Gypsy” opposite Naomi Watts.
Megan Ketch is set to play “Mindy Sterngood,” a charismatic young doctor with an eyebrow-raising fixation on the much-older Val (Kevin Bacon), who saved her from a Graboid at age nine. But Mindy’s hiding something that makes her an unanticipated threat: compelling as she is, more cunning is her mask.
Ketch landed the female lead in the drama pilot “Gotham” directed by Francis Lawrence and made her feature debut in the comedy “The Big Wedding.” Most recently she wrapped a series regular role on “American Gothic.” She could be seen in Joachim Trier’s “Louder than Bombs” and recurred on “Jane the Virgin.” Other television credits include recurring on “Blue Bloods,” “The Good Wife” and “Under the Dome.”
Emily Tremaine will play the role of “Emily McKee,” the whip-smart daughter of Val (Kevin Bacon) with a bright future ahead of her. She is newly graduated and stops by Perfection to visit her dad, but quality time with him is the standard disappointment, as Emily sinks further into the understanding that he’ll never change.
Tremaine starred as "Natalie Atwood" in “Guilt.” She is also known for playing the role of “Heather", in the series “Vinyl,” directed by Martin Scorsese. Additionally, she has recurred in guest-starring roles on the television series “The Blacklist,” “The Big C” and ROYAL PAINS. She has also appeared on the series “The Good Wife,” “Person of Interest,” “Deception,” “Lights Out” and “As The World Turns.”
