Casting announced for Kill All Others, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dream
Mel Rodriguez (Last Man on Earth, Getting On, Little Miss Sunshine) and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, The Departed) have joined the cast of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams leading the episode “Kill All Others.”
A man hangs dead from a lamppost, apparently murdered and inexplicably ignored by passersby, after a politician (Vera Farmiga - Bates Motel, The Departed) makes a shocking statement encouraging violence. When one man dares to question the situation he becomes an instant target. Written and directed by Dee Rees (Bessie, Pariah), this episode also stars Mel Rodriguez (Last Man on Earth, Getting On, Little Miss Sunshine) as the extraordinarily average Philbert Noyce, Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Kong: Skull Island) as Lenny and Glenn Morshower (Aftermath, Supergirl, Bloodline) as Ed, his co-workers, and Sarah Brown (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, General Hospital) as Philbert’s wife Maggie Noyce.
