Dallas Roberts (Dallas Buyers Club) and Clifton Collins Jr. (Pacific Rim) are confirmed for starring roles in the USA Network pilot Evil Men. The dramatic series pilot was written by Daniel Taplitz who’s also executive producing along with Gary Fleder (Life Unexpected), Eric Tannenbaum, and Kim Tannenbaum. Fleder’s directing the pilot.
“This supernatural drama is a symbolic tale of good versus evil set in the everyday modern world,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original Programming, USA Network, “It is a highly relatable story that begs the question of just how far we would go to protect our families.”
The Evil Men Plot:
Evil Men follows an upstanding, middle-class family man whose life is turned upside down when he is approached by a frighteningly powerful entity and commanded to kill “evil men” or see his family – along with his city – utterly destroyed. However, the gleeful psycho who is meant to be his first target, instead begins teaching him how to carry out his new destiny.
Roberts takes on the role of Harry Killas, the good husband and loving father who is tasked with an unthinkable mandate by the mysterious and vengeful supernatural force. Collins will play Lazlo Kirk, the profoundly evil former war criminal with magnetic charm and a deep, unpredictable violent streak, who forces himself into Harry’s life on a twisted mission of personal redemption.
