Penned by executive producer Karyn Usher (Prison Break), Delirium is based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling young adult novels about an alternate present where love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a surgical procedure dubbed The Cure.

The rub: Young Lena Holoway — to be played by Roberts — does the unthinkable and falls in love with 95 days to go until her treatment.

Kagasoff, who is a free agent now that Secret Life is heading into its final season on ABC Family, will play Alex, a police officer and the object of Lena’s affection.

The cast also includes The Closer‘s Corey Reynolds and The Killing’s Billy Campbell.

  • The casting decisions make me less and less excited about this adaptation. Love the books, but will probably be passing on the show.

  • I’m wondering if the wording of this article means we won’t meet Julian for a while, even though they are introducing his dad right off the bat.

    • they already cast Julian too. he’s gonna be played by Gregg Sulkin. I heard rumors that Julian was going to be Hanas love interest on the show though. I hope the rumors aren’t true.

        • No one really reported on Gregg Sulkin being cast. I only know because Lauren Oliver posted about it on Twitter!

    • totally disagree, he made the character of Ricky on Secret Life an interesting, multi-layered character and with Secret Life’s awful awful horrible writers it is kind of a miracle..he is pretty talented and has chemistry with co-stars pretty easily. I am looking forward to watch this project although Emma Roberts is kind of bland (but Daren is the opposite so let’s hope he will make her work)

  • This guy is awful. If the plot wasn’t bad enough, they cast him? It’s like they want it to fail. I think this is a Producers situation.

    • Oh please he is more talented you will ever dream to be..pathetic dude is and pitiful of course.

  • Daren will make ALEX come alive. He was the best character on SL. He’s multi- talented and I can’t wait to see what he will do with this great project.

  • Dumb plot. And Emma Roberts is terrible. Blech.

    I wish they’d just kept going with secret life and not made the last season suck so much.

    • let me rephrase the last sentence for you, hun: I wish that they got better writers and kept going with secret life. As an avid SL-er, I quit a couple of episodes into the fourth season (and trust me, I tried rewatching the rest of the season).

  • This is my second favorite casting. I’m sad that he doesn’t have that autumn type hair that Lena described, but he does look like the ruggedly handsome Alex I imagined. Never watched SL because of the teeny-bopper essence it had, so I hope they don’t go that soap-opera direction with Delirium.
