Ben Mendelsohn won a 2016 Emmy for his role in the TV series Bloodline. And, he’s starred in a number of blockbuster films, like 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 2017’s Darkest Hour. But he he’s not quite a household name… yet.

And, that may all be about to change, with Mendelsohn taking on a lead role in the TV adaptation of Stephen King‘s 2018 The Outsider, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

This is the latest of King’s novels, revolving around a murder of a young boy. The investigation appears to be pretty standard, but in typical King-style, the story takes a supernatural turn.

The two main characters, a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator, “question everything they believe to be real,” according to the storyline.

The series will air on HBO, with the first two episodes directed by Jason Bateman (Ozark). The premiere date has yet to be announced.

Mendelsohn can currently be spotted up on the big screen in Robin Hood: Origins as the Sheriff of Nottingham. And, you can look for him in 2019’s Captain Marvel, opposite Brie Larson in the title role.
