Stephen King’s time travel novel about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, 11/22/63 is coming to Hulu as a science-fiction miniseries in the near future. Or past. (I always get those two mixed up.) The author wanted to see how things were going, so he paid a visit to the set and snapped a photo with James Franco and JJ Abrams. The former plays English teacher Jake Epping, whereas the latter serves as Executive Producer.
Duhamel will play Frank Dunning, the father of Jake’s student Harry Dunning (played by youngster Jack Fulton and Leon Rippy), in 1960s Kentucky. Frank is the rakish town butcher, a ladies’ man with an effortless smile that everyone welcomes — except Jake, the only man who knows the full violence of which Frank is capable.
If any of that sounds as confusing to you as it does to me, then I don’t feel so bad. If not, then I’m just a dummy who doesn’t get time travel — an otherwise perfectly understandable yet fictional concept.
