'The Killing' Casts Peter Sarsgaard For Season 3 Role And More Casting News

"The Killing" has cast Peter Sarsgaard in his first regular TV role, EW reports.

He'll play Tom Seward, who is described as “a death row inmate for whom the clock is ticking down. A lifelong convict born into poverty and crime, Seward’s been in and out of the system for violent crimes since he was 10. Not ever wanting to appear weak, every interaction is a challenge, and one he must dominate.”

He joins previously cast Elias Koteas and Max Fowler for the AMC series' third season, alongside returning stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos.
