Anthony Head ( Buffy The Vampire Slayer , Merlin ) is heading back across the pond for another stab at Stateside sci-fi. According to TVLine , he has been cast in the pilot for the CW’s The Selection , a show which seems unashamedly riding on the success of The Hunger Games .
Head will be playing King Clarkson, the royal family’s patriarch. Well, we know he's good at kings. But if the series gets picked up, what is Radio 4 going to do when they need someone to play a middle-class, middle-aged man?
