Game of Thrones Star Cast as Charles Manson in NBC's Aquarius Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.20.2014
Renly Baratheon has formed his own household of crazies...
Gethin Anthony is gathering up his family of killers around him. TV Line reports that Anthony, who played Renly Baratheon on Game of Thrones, has signed on to play Charles Manson in NBC's event series Aquarius. Also cast in the film are Gray Damon (Friday Night Lights) as the partner of David Duchovny's undercover cop and Emma Dumont (Bunheads) as a new Manson Family recruit.
The film stars Duchovny as Hodiak, a cop who goes undercover with the Manson family. A jailbird who has spent half his life in prison, Manson dominates his young women followers through a combination of sex, drugs and a paternalistic and caring attitude that masks his inner evil. A dark, seductive force of nature, he recruits young Emma Karn (Dumont) to his ranks — but his interest in her may be far beyond the merely sexual. In fact, he may have embroiled her father in a far-reaching conspiracy.
