Actor Avan Jogia has just landed the lead role in Spike TV’s upcoming series Tut.
The Twisted star will be taking on the role of King Tut, alongside Sir Ben Kingsley, who will play Ay, King Tut’s top adviser.
“Vancouver-born actor Avan Jogia will be an outstanding addition to the cast of Tut,” said 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.”
The new series will be Spike TV’s first scripted series, and will be filming in Morocco and Canada this fall before premiering in 2015.
