Crucial to the Under the Dome series is a believable bad guy. One you really love to hate. Dean Norris has landed that role and will play Big Jim.
Norris will play politician and car dealership owner James “Big Jim” Rennie, who seizes an opportunity to take control of his small town Chester’s Mill when it’s sealed off from the rest of the world by a mysterious transparent force field. The casting comes on the heels of CBS signing Pan Am actor Mike Vogel to play the show’s main character, former Army officer Dale “Barbie” Barbara. Other cast members include Britt Robertson, who plays a local waitress, and Natalie Martinez, who will play an ambitious sheriff’s deputy.
