Adrian Hough To Star As Sigourney Weaver’s Screen Brother in ‘(re)Assignment’

Hough To Co-Star with SciFi Icon Sigourney Weaver

Actor Adrian Hough is hitting the boards hard with various upcoming roles that will see him star in a science fiction TV show as well as Co-Star with one of SciFi Cinema’s legends. Indeed the actor is looking to be pretty damn busy with three projects that will be of great interest to genre fans.

Hough is currently in Toronto doing the film and party circuit at TIFF16 where he will appear in the September 14th world premiere of ‘(re)Assignment’. Hough plays the role of Sebastian, brother of Sigourney Weaver’s character and the impetus behind her bizarre revenge on a hitman played by Michelle Rodriguez in this Walter Hill thriller.

In the new science fiction series ‘Travellers’ Hough’s character will take the Travellers by surprise as one of them buckles under the guilt of not being allowed to prevent future deaths, putting the other travelers in jeopardy. Starring Eric McCormack (‘Perception’, ‘Will & Grace’) and created by Brad Wright (‘Stargate’ franchise), ‘Travelers’ is a brand new original contemporary drama with a futuristic twist. McCormack and Hough go way back, even working together on an episode of ‘Top Cops’ 25 years ago. “Love working with Eric. We share a sense of ironic humour. And it was a blast playing someone so loose with something to hide,” says Hough. ‘Travelers’ makes its world premiere in Canada on Showcase on October 17, 2016, and premieres in the U.S. and internationally on Netflix in December 2016.

In the new SyFy series ‘Aftermath’ Hough will guest star as Reverend Brother, the leader of an off-the-grid religious commune where all is not as it appears. “It was enjoyable playing a Reverend at the end of days, ostensibly gathering his flock. And it was a treat working with young up-and-comers Mitchell Kummen and Taylor Hickson.” ‘Aftermath’ premieres on SyFy and Space on September 27th.
