Gregg Sulkin to Star Opposite Emma Roberts in “Delirium” Pilot


greggsulkin-delirium-021913Gregg Sulkin has landed a new TV gig!

The adorable dimpled Brit has been cast opposite Emma Roberts and Billy Campbell in the Fox pilot “Delirium” according to Deadline. The show is based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling book trilogy which 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.

Gregg will play Julian, 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.

This definitely sounds like a cool premise for a TV show! Congrats to Gregg! Fingers crossed the pilot makes it to air.

Gregg tweeted about the big news, “I’m very excited to be in the cast of #delirium. I just want to take time to say this to everyone who has followed my career and supported me so far: thank you. I am very grateful for all of you guys and I hope to make you proud and deliver the best pilot possible.”
