Jared Harris, star of Mad Men, Fringe and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, has joined the cast of Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist remake.

Deadline reports that Harris will play “Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality who left the world of academia behind to become the star host of basic cable TV show Haunted House Cleaners.” He’ll join Rosemarie DeWitt, while Sam Rockwell is being courted to play the male lead. Harris will next be seen in Hammer’s The Quiet Ones.
