It was just last week it was reported that Parks & Recreations alum Adam Scott had joined Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s reboot of the classic anthology series The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access. Well it looks like the studio and Peele are targeting even more big names for the series.
We have learned that the studio has offered roles to Riz Ahmed and Jacob Tremblay.
The actors would appear in episode 3 tentatively titled “Kid President“. Tremblay would play the kid president, while Ahmed would play his campaign manager. With Peele appearing as the host, as he will every episode.
