Guillermo del Toro’s “The Strain” has a new professor.
Veteran British actor David Bradley will star as Professor Abraham Setrakian in the upcoming FX drama series “The Strain,” based on the trilogy of vampire books by del Toro and author Chuck Hogan. “Lost” vet Carlton Cuse is writing and producing the series.
FX recently ordered up 13 episodes of the series.
Bradley replaces John Hurt (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), who was originally cast in the role.
“The Strain” is scheduled to debut next July on FX.
