Scoop: Cinemax's Quarry Adds Stellan Skarsgård

Quarry Cast Stellan SkarsgardBig-screen staple Stellan Skarsgård has boarded Cinemax’s drama pilot Quarry, TVLine has learned.

Loosely based on a series of books by Max Allen Collins, the project centers on a Marine marksman (played by PrometheusLogan Marshall-Green) who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 only to find himself shunned and demonized. The disillusioned vet is quickly recruited into a network of contract killers and immersed in corruption along the Mississippi River.

Skarsgård (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) will play The Broker, a shadowy figure who lures Green’s title character into his criminal ranks.
