Jessica Rothe, the breakout star of horror-comedy “Happy Death Day,” has just been recruited for the Amazon series “Utopia.”
She joins already cast John Cusack, Rainn Wilson and Sasha Lane (“American Honey”) in the sci-fi thriller where everyone’s fate might be determined by a cult comic book.
She’ll have a recurring role as Samantha, a comic-book nerd who is extremely idealistic, sharp-witted and a natural-born leader.
The series is a remake of the British drama of the same name.
Rothe also stars in the musical adaptation of the 1983 romantic comedy “Valley Girl.” (Like, OMG!)
You may remember her (briefly) as one of Emma Stone’s dancing BFFS in “La La Land.”
