G.I. Joe: Retaliation actress Adrianne Palicki, who starred NBC’s rejected Wonder Woman pilot, has been cast in the El Rey Network’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.
EW.com reports she, Jake Busey (Starship Troopers) and Lane Garrison (Bonnie & Clyde, Prison Break) will join previously announced actors D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Wilmer Valderrama, Jesse Garcia and Don Johnson in the 10-episode drama based on 1996 cult horror film by Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Rodriguez is one of the creators of El Rey.
Palicki plays Vanessa Style, a woman from Seth Gecko’s (Cotrona) past, while Busey is an “eccentric, mythology-obsessed professor Aiden Tanner.” Garrison portrays a liquor-store clerk named Pete “who gets more than he bargained for when the Gecko brothers enter his shop.”
