Summer (paradisecity) | 360 comments I saw this in another group today but didn't see anything here when I checked: AMC is developing a 10 episode series based on NOS4A2 and it looks like Zachary Quinto is attached as the villain, and Ashleigh Cummings is playing Vic. Might be worth checking out whenever it's released!

John | 19 comments Weird. I imagined Manx an old man, very different from Zachary Quinto.


message 4: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie Quinto is an interesting choice. Excited to see it!

So did I! I thought he was described as an old man.

Nick Iuppa | 3992 comments BTW: The audiobook is really great as read by Kate Mulgrew, definate sounds like an old man in her read.

Erin (ems84) | 2100 comments I had heard about AMC developing this show, I think it will be interesting to watch. Even more so with Zachary Quinto playing Manx.

I second this. One of my favorite audiobooks!


message 9: by Kandice (new)

Kandice | 3968 comments I know Manx was described as old, but he couldn't always have been old!


message 10: by John (new)

John | 19 comments Sure he was young at one time, but I doubt they’ll explore Manx’s life as a young man. They’re probably changing the character, though I don’t know why they would.

They always do that. Who knows the reason why.


message 12: by Kandice (new)

Kandice | 3968 comments I think they decide on a particular actor and then make the part suit that actor. I think Quinto has a really creepy vibe at times, so could get the feel of Manx perfectly. Besides, they can age people really well now, so Quinto could be his age in flashbacks and aged for the present. I think flashbacks would add a lot to the story. I'll want to see why and how Manx is what he is.

Kandice | 3968 comments I'm rereading this right now and the first time Bing and Manx meet Bing wonders why he thinks of Manx as old since he certainly doesn't look it.

Suzanne (kewpie200) | 2 comments This is being filmed in Rhode Island right now, the first film site was Lincoln Woods, 2 minuted from my house!

That's pretty cool, I didn't know they were filming in the New England area.

I'm super excited for this and glad that AMC is doing it. They did really well with The Walking Dead when it first started.

Nicole Power (nicolepower) | 295 comments This is really interesting, thanks for sharing!’

Are we certain the villain Quinto is playing is not Bing? I’m still reading N0S4A2 and Manx is described as old again and again, like 115 years old. They could have changed it for the show, but seems pointless.

IMDb says he plays Manx. Makeup?

Yes, but when he's getting what he wants, he appears young and because it's a show, I imagine there will be a lot of flashbacks, and in those I bet he appears young.

Makeup does wonders, I would have never known that was Quinto.

Suzanne (kewpie200) | 2 comments I'm pretty sure the whole thing is being filmed in RI, but it's hard to find out where and when!
