Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural) has been cast as the lead in the indie drama Joint Body. He’ll star as a parolee whose ex-wife won’t allow him to see their young daughter, and who gets involved with an equally lonely stripper and “saves her from an unlikely assailant and is forced to re-evaluate his freedom as he evades the law and faces demons from his past,” Variety reports. The cast also includes Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights) and Jim Parrack (True Blood).
