The fate of ABC Family’s Twisted may still be up in the air (renew it!) but fans won’t have to wait around to see Avan Jogia on their screens again. The actor has been tapped to play King Tut in the upcoming Spike TV miniseries “Tut”. Avan will be starring alongside Ben Kingsley.
“We are thrilled to work with such an incredibly gifted young actor who is perfectly suited to take on the immensely complex character of King Tutankhamun,” said Spike original series exec vpSharon Levy.
“Vancouver-born actor Avan Jogia will be an outstanding addition to the cast of Tut,” added Michael Prupas, CEO of Muse Entertainment. “Jogia is a hot young talent with a loyal following who has already made a name for himself in film and television.”
Avan is set to star in a bunch of other things so he’s certainly keeping busy. But what does this all mean for the fate of Twisted? According to some new reports, we may be receiving our answer later this year.
