Juliette Lewis will return to television in 2014 for M. Night Shyamalan’s adaptation of the best-selling series Wayward Pines by Blake Crouch. The actress will star as Beverly, a “warm and approachable small-town bartender who doesn’t mince words,” according to Deadline. The series follows a Secret Service agent (Matt Dillon) who is sent on a mission to Wayward Pines, Idaho to locate two missing federal agents. Apparently Lewis’ character shares the same suspicions about the deceptively bucolic town. Lewis recently starred in the mob-centered law drama The Firm and made an appearance on Portlandia. Here’s hoping M. Night can get his act together for what could be a thrilling, Twin Peaks-y mystery.
