Syfy’s High Moon Pilot Casts Leads!

Chris Diamantopoulos Jake Sandvig

Syfy’s High Moon – based on the novel The Lotus Caves by John Christopher (Tripods) – has cast its male leads, signing Chris Diamantopoulos and Jake Sandvig. The two will play brothers Ian and Marty, respectively, who are diametrically opposed in almost every way – Ian being an investigator for the federal government who is assigned to find out the causes of an explosion on a moon colony, while Marty is a convicted felon serving out his sentence by working as a miner on that same moon colony.

The rub, as it were, is that the explosion reveals a new form of life – and the race is on to discover its powerful secrets.

High Moon is adapted for television by Bryan Fuller (story) and Jim Danger Gray (story and pilot script). For more details, check out the press release following the jump.

Television: Chris Diamantopoulos To Join Cast of 24


Chris Diamantopoulos, a handsome 34 year old Canadian born actor, has been added to the regular cast for the up coming 8th season of the hit FOX series, 24.

Diamantopoulos, who has been acting since he was nine years old and has done work on Broadway, will play Rob Weiss, the tough new Chief of Staff to President Allison Taylor. Viewers last saw this talented actor as Rodney on the recently cancelled series, The Starter Wives.

24 stars Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer the top, though often times very rogue, agent of the LA Counter Terrorist Unit. 24 has a unique premise in which each season of the hit series takes place in one day as episodes unfolds in real time following a consecutive hour and it’s never a "good day" for Jack and the members of CTU.

24 airs on Monday nights at 9PM EST on the FOX Network.
