“Game of Thrones” actor Pilou Asbæk, best known for playing the vile Euron Greyjoy on the HBO hit, will play Richard Straker in New Line’s “Salem’s Lot”.
Now in production in Boston, the Gary Dauberman-directed film stars Lewis Pullman in the lead role of Ben Mears with Alfre Woodard, Makenzie Leigh, Bill Camp and Spencer Treat Clark in support roles.
Asbæk plays the vampire familiar who prepares for the arrival of his master and does plenty of dirty work, says THR, who have the scoop.
The actor, lauded for his work in Denmark, is fresh from shooting James Wan’s “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”. Wan is a producer on “Salem’s Lot”, suggesting he might have put Asbæk’s name forward to play Straker.
“Salem’s Lot” is set for a Sept. 9, 2022, release.
