We have another cast member, and this is a big one. Lauren Oliver has announced that the Delirium family welcomes Gregg Sulkin into its midst as Julian, a main character in the second book in the trilogy.
We learned earlier this month that Julian might enter the scene quite a bit earlier in the TV Show than in the book series and we also learned Julian’s father’s casting recently. Deadline describes Sulkin’s role in the show.
Gregg Sulkin (Pretty Little Liars) is set to co-star opposite Emma Roberts and Billy Campbell in Delirium, Fox‘s drama pilot from Karyn Usher, 20th TV and Chernin Entertainment. Based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling book trilogy, it is set in a world where love is deemed illegal and can be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway (Roberts) does the unthinkable: she falls in love. Sulkin will play Julien, the son of wealthy political leader Thomas Fineman (Campbell). While his father supports the use of the brain modification, Julien is conflicted about having to undergo a surgery to remove his feelings and eventually finds a kindred spirit in Lena. Sulkin, repped by UTA, D2 Management and Bloom Hergott, recently wrapped production on the Fox feature Panda Eyes opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers and he will next be seen starring opposite Selena Gomez in Disney Channel’s Wizards Of Waverly Place Reunion.

I am a fan of Gregg Sulkin and think he could bring a very good feel to Julian’s character. He has that look of being both well-off and lost at the same time, which is a good characteristic for Julian to have. Do you agree? Do you think they should have gone in a different direction? Let us know what you think is the comments!
