Scott Speedman is “Open” to a relationship with Ryan Murphy and HBO.
The “Felicity” alum has been cast in “Glee” and “American Horror Story” boss Ryan Murphy’s HBO pilot “Open,” an individual familiar with the production has told TheWrap.
Speedman, who recently starred in ABC’s short-lived submarine drama “Last Resort,” will play what’s described as a handsome sports-marketing executive.
The cast also includes “The Hunger Games” actor Wes Bentley, who’ll play an arrogant but charismatic blowhard who enjoys spouting his theories on human sexuality.
The pilot, written by Murphy and Lauren Gussis (“Dexter“), is described as a “modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.”
Dante Di Loreto (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”) is executive producing for Ryan Murphy Television and Fox 21.
Deadline first reported the news of Speedman’s casting.
