J.J. Abrams' Fringe just got a whole bunch more interesting with the casting of Australian actress Anna Torv to play the upcoming series' title character.
Anna Torv Joins Fringe
The two-hour pilot, being directed by Alex Graves, centers on Olivia Warren (Torv), a young, tough FBI agent who is forced to confront the spread of unexplained phenomena and work with Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), an institutionalized scientist whose work might be at the center of a coming storm.
Fox's high-profile sci-fi drama comes from the minds of J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
Blair Brown and Jasika Nicole have also joined the cast. Brown will play the brilliant Nina Cord, a 16-year veteran at Prometheus Corp., a cutting-edge research facility. Nicole will play the recurring role of Astrid, a stunning federal assistant.
A lot of ladies, I know, but Abrams has already proved that he has what it takes to create successful estrogen-packed series thanks to Felicity, Alias and a dash of LOST.
