“Fringe” favorite Seth Gabel has bounced from one genre series to another, being cast in ABC drama pilot “Gothica”. The series sounds a little like a take on “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, featuring the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein, Jekyll & Hyde and Dorian Gray.
Gabel has signed on to play Roderick Usher, District Attorney and part of the powerful Usher family. One assumes – given the other literary connections – that would be the Usher family from the Edgar Allan Poe story “The Fall of the House of Usher”, which features Roderick Usher entombing his sister whilst she is alive and slowly going nuts because of it. Spooky!
