Meet The Cast Of “Black Bird”

An upcoming miniseries based on a popular novel is set to appear on Apple TV+ in July. Titled Black Bird, this miniseries is based on the autobiographical novel In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption, which was written by James Keene. The TV adaptation of the novel is written by Dennis Lehane, who is most popularly known for his work on the Oscar-winning movie Mystic RiverGone Baby Gone, Shutter Island, and Live by Night. Apple TV+’s press release describes the plot of Black Bird as follows: “Inspired by actual events, when high school football hero and decorated policeman’s son Jimmy Keene is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison, he is given the choice of a lifetime — enter a maximum-security prison for the criminally insane and befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall, or stay where he is and serve his full sentence with no possibility of parole. Keene quickly realizes his only way out is to elicit a confession and find out where the bodies of several young girls are buried before Hall’s appeal goes through. But is this suspected killer telling the truth? Or is it just another tale from a serial liar? This dramatic and captivating story subverts the crime genre by enlisting the help of the very people put behind bars to solve its mysteries.” Black Bird promises an impressive list of cast members ready to breathe life into the show.

That’s how I pick roles. Sometimes I’ll do something for five bucks, and sometimes you do something for a lot of money. You have to balance that out, which is tough. But luckily, I’ve gotten a lot of good people to work with. I think the last couple people I’ve starred opposite are Vince Vaughn in Queenpins, Taron Edgerton in this new show I’m doing at Apple, and before that, I got to work with Marissa Tomei on this movie called Delia’s Gone. So if I look at people like Vince and Marissa and Taron, it’s like, these are some of the best actors working today. And that’s really important that I get to sharpen my tools as an actor, playing opposite people who are really talented and sharp themselves.”
