Although he’ll always be Hank to us, Dean Norris is a consistent joy pretty much anywhere he pops up on our screens (or under our domes, as the case may be). For instance: Deadline reports that Norris has just signed on for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming horror adaptation Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.

There‚Äôs no word yet on which of author Alvin Schwartz‚Äôs doomed protagonists Norris will be playing‚ÄĒalthough buddy, if you start to notice a Red Spot on your cheek, for the love of god, DON‚ÄôT SCRATCH‚ÄĒbut he‚Äôll be joined by a couple of other newcomers to the project, including Ally McBeal‚Äôs Gil Bellows and Orange Is The New Black‚Äôs Lorraine Toussaint. Del Toro is producing the film and co-writing the script, alongside writing team Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman. Trollhunter‚Äôs Andr√© √ėvredal
is set to direct.
