American actor of Armenian descent Eric Bogosian ("Talk Radio") has been cast in the upcoming TV adaptation of Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire" in the role of "Daniel Molloy," an investigative journalist nearing the end of his career who's given a second chance at the interview of a lifetime, Broadway World reports.

Bogosian joins previously announced cast Sam Reid ("Lestat"), Jacob Anderson ("Louis"), Bailey Bass ("Claudia") and Assad Zaman ("Rashid").
Bogosian is best known as a playwright, novelist and actor. He wrote and starred in the play "Talk Radio" (NY Shakespeare Festival, 1987; on Broadway starring Liev Schreiber, 2007), for which he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award. For his film adaptation of the play, Bogosian received the Berlin Film Festival "Silver Bear." His six solo performances Off-Broadway between 1980 and 2000 (including "Drinking in America", "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll" and "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee") received three Obie awards and the Drama Desk Award.
