LUKE KLEINTANKBones” and “Pretty Little Liars” star Luke Kleintank has taken a leading role in the long-gestating Ridley Scott-produced adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s iconic novel, “The Man in the High Castle.” Deadline reports that he’ll play a character named Joe Blake.

The original novel, published in 1962, is set in an alternate history where the Axis powers won the Second World War due to a 1933 assassination of Franklin D. Roosevelt (based on the historical attempt by Giuseppe Zangara, who wound up murdering Chicago’s then-Mayor Anton Cermak instead).

Blake, who does not appear in the novel, is said to be a New York City-based member of a resistance cell.

Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files”) is writing the pilot and executive producing with David Semel (“Legends”) set to direct. Originally planned as a four-hour miniseries, “The Man in the High Castle” is now going into development through Amazon Studios’ third annual pilot launch.

    That’s not Luke Kleintank. That’s Alexander Ludwig, who played Cato in the Hunger Games and can currently be seen as Bjorn Lothbrok/Ragnarson on Vikings. You should double check your photos before posting.
