Having conquered network television and basic cable, Ryan Murphy’s trying his luck on premium cable — and he’s taking Wes Bentley with him.
The “Hunger Games” star has signed on to star in Murphy’s “Open,” a drama pilot at HBO. The project, co-written with Lauren Gussis (“Dexter”), is described as a modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.
The Wrap reports that Bentley will play Evan Foster in the series, a character described as “handsome and knows it, arrogant and completely charismatic, a bit of a blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality.”
“Open” marks a rare foray into TV for Bentley. Previously, the actor was attached to the HBO pilot “Tilda,” starring Ellen Page and Diane Keaton, but the pilot never went to series.
Beyond his role as Seneca Crane in “The Hunger Games,” Bentley’s other film credits include “American Beauty” and “Lovelace.”
