Scoop: Peter Sarsgaard Joins The Killing

peter sarsgaard the killing season 3The Killing‘s Season 3 cast continues to take shape.

Peter Sarsgaard (An Education, Kinsey) is set to tackle his first recurring TV role in AMC’s dark crime drama, playing Tom Seward, a death-row inmate for whom the clock is ticking down. Described as “a lifelong convict born into poverty and crime,” Sarsgaard’s character has “been in and out of the system for violent crimes since he was 10.” Determined to never be seen as weak, Seward approaches every interaction with the goal of dominating it.

Sarsgaard joins fellow Season 3 newbies Amy Seimetz (announced earlier today), Elias Koteas (Combat Hospital) and Max Fowler.

The new season of The Killing (which AMC ordered only months after sending it to the guillotine) picks up a year after the events of the Season 2 finale and will focus on a single mystery which — unlike the case of “Who killed Rosie Larsen?” — will resolve over the course of 12 episodes.

Executive producer, writer and showrunner Veena Sud will return, as will lead actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.

    Love him!

  2. Rosie says:

    The creators said the same thing in the beginning of season one about the mystery getting solved at the end of the season, yet, it dragged til the second season. Now, they are hyping to have a resolution over the course of 12 episodes. I think I will skip on this show despite the casting of Peter Sarsgaard.

      Post the link where they say it was going to be solved at the end of season 1. It was just expected and let some people down. Not me, I loved both seasons.

      • Kate says:

        EXACTLY. This is still driving me crazy, that people just decided they were entitled to a resolution in the first season finale.

        And, in response to Rosie, I think the fact that there was such backlash is exactly the reason you can be sure this mystery will resolve in 12.

      Quit fabricating things. They never promised anything. It was assumed and when people realized that their assumptions were wrong, they threw a fit.

  3. ^ how about shut up Rosie please and thank you

  5. CR says:

    Damn you Killing, just when I think I am done with you, you pull a brilliant casting decision.

  6. Kassie says:

    Excellent. Can’t wait for Season 3. Love me some Linden and Holder.

  7. Tammy says:

    My husband keeps asking about this show, do we have a date for season 3 to air?

  8. Fran Nelson says:

    I’m so excited the show is coming back! Love it!
