It’s all happening for Oliver Jackson-Cohen this week.
Following the news that the actor has joined the cast of Universal’s The Invisible Man as the titular Invisible Man, The Wrap has just reported that he’s also joining the cast of the second instalment of Netflix’s horror anthology series The Haunting Of Hill House, titled The Haunting Of Bly Manor.
Jackson-Cohen appeared in Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting Of Hill House, loosely based on Shirley Jackson’s famous gothic horror novel of the same name. He played the adult version of Luke Crain, the older twin of Nell (played by Victoria Pedretti), and one of the two youngest members of the Crain family.
The Haunting Of Bly Manor will be based on Henry James’ novel The Turn Of The Screw. Jackson-Cohen is set to play a ‘charming fellow’ named Peter. Other character details are being kept under wraps.
The actor will star opposite his Hill House co-star Pedretti, who is set to play a governess named Dani, “who takes care of two very unusual children.”
The Haunting Of Bly Manor is set to premiere on Netflix in 2020. Get all the latest horror news with every issue of SciFiNow.
