No stranger to playing a kid separated from his parents, Colony‘s Jacob Buster is about to find himself alone once more.
Buster, currently a series regular on the USA Network drama, has been tapped to appear in The CW’s action-adventure pilot Searchers, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Searchers — from executive producers Jason Rothenberg, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter — follows two young adults, Cooper and Fable Brooks, who go looking for their adventurer parents a decade after they’re lost at sea. Buster will play Cooper at age 14, a time in his life when he’s simply “not interested in his mother’s fairy tales.” (But, oh, he will be!)
Buster is repped by Strong Management, Abrams Artists Agency, and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman.
