The CW’s Cult is getting a new member.
Degrassi: The Next Generation alumna Stacey Farber has landed a recurring role on the upcoming midseason drama, TVLine has confirmed.
The meta series centers around Jeff (The Vampire Diaries‘ Matt Davis), a journalist blogger who teams with a young production assistant (Melrose Place‘s Jessica Lucas) working on a popular TV show called Cult. After his brother goes missing, the two start investigating the show’s rabid fans, who may be re-creating the crimes from the program. Farber will play tech-saavy E.J., who works with Jeff and helps him in the search for his sibling.
The actress tweeted the news of her casting on Sunday evening. “Thrilled to announce that I’ll be back on TV starting January,” she wrote. “Thank you for cheering me on.”
In addition to Degrassi, Farber also starred in the Canadian sitcom 18 to Life, which had a short run on The CW in 2010.Follow @VladaGelman
