“Roswell, New Mexico” star Jeanine Mason has landed a key role in Blair Underwood’s upcoming psychological thriller “Viral.”
Mason co-stars opposite Emmy winners Underwood and Sarah Silverman in the independent film, playing a woman named Jules, whose disappearance kicks off the plot. Written by Joe McClean, the story centers on a man named Andrew (Underwood) who falls into paranoia after his wife (Mason) goes missing, and finds the only way out of a years-long spiral in his new girlfriend Emilia (Silverman).
Also joining the film’s cast are Clint James, Brendan Burke, Samuel Garnett, Jo Twiss and Connor Paolo.
In addition to starring in the film, Underwood — a 2020 Tony Award nominee — will direct and produce the project. McClean, Daniel Cypress, John Kalafatis, Joanna Kalafatis and Andreas Ignatiou of York Films will also serve as producers. Production on the project, which was originally set to shoot in 2020, but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will begin in New York next month.
Mason currently stars as Liz Ortecho on the CW’s “Roswell, New Mexico,” which debuts its third season in July and has been renewed for a fourth. Mason burst onto the Hollywood scene when she won the fifth season of “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2009. After making her transition to acting, she is also known for her recurring role as Dr. Sam Bello on “Grey’s Anatomy” and she most recently starred opposite Dolly Parton and Christine Baranski in Debbie Allen’s “Christmas on the Square” for Netflix.
Mason is repped by Verve Talent & Literary, 3 Arts and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman.
