Send out an APB, because Mireille Enos ('Big Love') is set to make 'The Killing.' AMC has just announced that it has cast the 'Big Love' actress as the lead in their new drama pilot.
Based on the Danish series 'Forbrydelsen,' 'The Killing' tracks three different storylines after the murder of a young Seattle girl: the detectives on the case; the grieving parents; and the murder suspects. Enos will play Sarah, the lead homicide detective on the investigation. She will join the already-cast Billy Campbell ('Once and Again'), as city council president and mayoral hopeful Darren Richmond, and Michelle Forbes ('True Blood') and Brent Sexton ('In the Valley of Elah') as the victim's parents.Those with HBO may already be familiar with Enos and her stellar work as twins Kathy and JoDean Marquart on 'Big Love.' She was also nominated for a Tony award in 2005 as a featured actress in 'Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.'
Production on the 'Killing' is slated to begin May 10 in Vancouver. The pilot, which sounds like a cross between 'The Wire' and 'CSI,' was written by Veena Sud ('Cold Case') and will be directed by Patty Jenkins ('Monster').
