Kyle MacLachlan is the latest actor to join the already exciting cast of Eli Roth‘s interpretation The House With A Clock In Its Walls. MacLachlan will star alongside funny man Jack Black and the ever talented Cate Blanchett.Eric Kripke has adapted the novel for the screen.
An adaptation of John Bellair‘s 1973 horror book, the film tells the story of an orphaned boy who moves in with his uncle (Black), uncovering a whirlwind of magic and danger hidden in the house’s walls. MacLachlan will play Isaac Izard, the former owner of the house.
Kyle MacLachlan’s face is very recognisable (if not down to a likeness to Rupert Everett), with credits ranging from brief leads in the ’80s, to guest appearances on modern sitcoms. Most notable is MacLachlan’s role in Twin Peaks, which enjoyed a major resurrection this year.
