Playing a Nation of Islam fanatic...
NBC is continuing to fill out the cast of their event series Aquarius, and have tapped a former Grey's Anatomy cast member to do so. TV Line reports that Gaius Charles, who also appeared on Friday Night Lights, will play Bunchy Carter in the Charles Manson-themed thirteen-episode series.
The 1960s-set drama stars David Duchovny as a cop who goes undercover to track Manson and his "family." Charles's character is described as "a former gang-banger who is now a fanatical Nation of Islam adherent whose hatred of the white man is evident. He preaches his isolationist doctrine in the inner city — and those who don't adhere to his teachings are routinely threatened and intimidated. He has a run-in with his old nemesis, Hodiak (Duchovny), who uses some harsh tactics to ensure Bunchy's 'cooperation.'"
Gethin Anthony (Game of Thrones) plays Manson in the series.
