Though not making any showing at Comic-Con 2013, ‘After Earth‘ director M. Night Shyamalan‘s upcoming FOX horror thriller ‘Wayward Pines‘ has certainly been busy gathering its cast. It recently added genre babe Carla Gugino, and today Captain America‘ and ‘The Girl‘ star Toby Jones has joined the shows as a regular.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones will take the role of Dr. Jenkins, a psychiatrist who treats Ethan (Matt Dillon) at Wayward Pines Hospital. Jenkins believes Ethan suffered brain damage in a car crash — which is causing his paranoia — but an uncertain Ethan believes there to be more to Jenkins than he lets on.

Starring Dillon, Gugino and Oscar-winner Melissa Leo, and based on the novel of the same name by Blake Crouch and written by Chad Hodge, ‘Wayward Pines’ follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke as he travels to Wayward Pines, Idaho on a mission to find two missing federal agents. The series is said to be in the vein of ‘Twin Peaks.’

The series will most likely debut on FOX as a limited series in 2014, similar to FOX’s recent orders of ‘The Following‘ and ‘24: Live Another Day.’ Do you think Shyamalan will have better luck on FOX than he’s had at the movies in recent years?
