HORROR ON TV: More Casting News for ROSEMARY'S BABY
Casting for the NBC mini-series based on Ira Levin's Rosemary's Baby is well underway, and we have our Mrs. Castevet! The role of the doting deceiver, Margaut Castevet (Minnie Castavet in Roman Polanski's 1968 adaptation), is being played by former Bond girl, Carole Bouquet. Margaut Castevet is a wealthy Parisian socialite, and neighbor to Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse (Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams, respectively), who takes an uncanny liking to Rosemary and aids her with her unexpected pregnancy. Christina Cole (Hex, Doghouse) will play Rosemary's young girlfriend, a character who was not in the original.
I have to say, I love the pairing of Carole Bouquet with Jason Isaacs who will be playing her husband, Roman Castevet, in the mini-series. If his work in the Harry Potter franchise says anything, it's that he does creepy very well.
This adaptation centers “on Rosemary Woodhouse (Zoe Saldana), a young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband Guy (Patrick J. Adams), moves into a Paris apartment that has a dark past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.”
