Seth Rogen will star in an episode of The Twilight Zone


In case you needed more stars in Jordan Peele and CBS All Access’ revamping of The Twilight Zone, Seth Rogen is now set to join the cast.

According to a report from Deadline, Seth Rogen will star in an episode of The Twilight Zone. Rogen joins a lengthy list of actors already announced, including the previously announced Ike Barinholtz, John Cho, Taissa Farmiga, Greg Kinnear, Luke Kirby, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Alison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Jessica Williams, DeWanda Wise, Steven Yeun and Ginnifer Goodwin.

The character Rogen will play and the details of his episode of The Twilight Zone have not been revealed yet.

This announcement comes a couple of weeks after Peele and CBS All Access dropped the first trailer for the upcoming series. That trailer itself gave a first glimpse at Tracy Morgan whose appearance had previously been unannounced.

While that trailer gave a lot of interesting clips, it also may have only shown segments of a few of the ten episodes. Perhaps there are still more stars to be revealed in the coming weeks leading up to the April 1 premiere, which will include the first two episodes.

Following the two premiere episodes, The Twilight Zone will have a new episode available weekly on Thursdays, starting April 11.

Rod Serling’s original version of The Twilight Zone premiered 60 years ago. Jordan Peele will step into his shoes as the on-screen host this time around. This marks the most recent in a line of attempts to bring the series back to the public after its original run ended in 1964, including 1985 and 2002 tv series and a 1983 movie. None quite matched the prowess of the original which the Writers Guild of America ranked as the third best-written series of all time.
