UPDATED: Multiple sources confirm to me exclusively that ex-Smallvilleâs evildoer Sam Witwer (a.k.a. Doomsday) is the odds-on favorite has officially signed on to play vampire Aidan in Syfyâs in-the-works U.S. remake of the U.K. supernatural dramedy Being Human.
Additionally, Meaghan Rath (The Assistants) has inked a deal to play ghost Molly, and Sam Huntington (Cavemen) is up for the role of werewolf Josh. Beautiful Peopleâs Ricky Mabe and Smallvilleâs Aaron Ashmore had also tested for the werewolf part, but Iâm told theyâre no longer in the running.
Being Human revolves around three twentysomething roommates - named Mitchell, George, and Annie in the British version - who attempt to blend in despite, you know, being a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost.
Itâs Threeâs Company meets True Blood, and itâs a big bloody hit across the pond!
