“The Twilight Zone:” Chris O’Dowd is the latest in a long line of stars to join the much-awaited reboot from Academy-Award-winner Jordan Peele.
The Twilight Zone-Chris O’Dowd team-up is something we didn’t know we’d be so excited for but with the Co Roscommon actor now added to such a star-studded cast and with Jordan Peele at the reboot’s helm, it’s hard to see how much can go wrong.
It was revealed that “The Twilight Zone” cast Chris O’Dowd in an episode entitled “The Blue Scorpion” which will also feature Amy Landecker. O’Dowd’s episode was written by Glen Morgan, who is the reboot’s showrunner.
“The Twilight Zone” and Chris O’Dowd will hit our screens on April 1 when you can enjoy the first two episodes of the anthology series, with further new installments being made available weekly on Thursdays. The show will debut on CBS: All Access.
