Scoop: The Wire Vet Joins Cinemax Pilot Quarry

Quarry Pilot Cast Jamie HectorErstwhile Wire gang leader Jamie Hector has joined Cinemax’s drama pilot Quarry, TVLine has learned.

The prospective series, based loosely on a series of books by Max Allen Collins, centers on the titular Marine marksman (played by PrometheusLogan Marshall-Green) who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 only to find himself shunned and demonized.

Disillusioned, the vet is quickly recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption along the Mississippi River.

Hector — who’ll co-star alongside the previously cast Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Stellan Skarsgård (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones) and Skipp Sudduth (The Good Wife) — plays Quarry’s best friend Arthur.

Rectify scribes Michael D. Fuller and Graham Gordy penned and exec-produce Quarry, while John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road) serves as EP and director of the pilot. Keith Redmon (Awake), Steve Golin, David Kanter and Matt DeRoss are also attached as EPs.
