Nick Nolte is the latest star to join the swelling cast of Fox’s upcoming Broadchurch remake, Gracepoint.
Nolte joins the show, about a murder in a small coastal town, as a series regular, playing Jack Reinhold, a stubborn, unmarried man who has lived in Gracepoint for two decades. According to casting details, his character “runs the kayak rental on the beach as well as the local wildlife observation program, where the murdered boy was one of his volunteers.”
Nolte rounds out a cast that also includes David Tennant, who will play the lead detective, Anna Gunn, Jacki Weaver, Michael Pena, and Kevin Zegers.
Back in September, after the conclusion of Broadchurch‘s run on BBC America, creator Chris Chibnall told EW of the remake, which begins shooting in January: “The DNA of the original is absolutely intact and filtered through a new prism, so it should still feel just as vibrant, and interesting, and strange, and unique, and beautiful, but just in a different setting — and then it’s exploring the dramatic opportunities that that offers up.”
