NatGeo is filling the ranks of its new miniseries with some well-known names.
Kate Bosworth (Blue Crush), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break, The Walking Dead), Jason Ritter (Parenthood) and Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order) are among the actors who’ve signed on to The Long Road Home, an upcoming eight-episode event at the basic cabler, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Kelly will play Lt. Col. Gary Volesky, the heroic battalion commander; Callies will play his wife, LeAnn, who is active in the homefront community. Ritter’s character, Capt. Troy Denomy, is married to Bosworth’s Gina; the pair have a newborn son. Sisto will play career soldier Staff Sgt. Robert Miltenberger, who is approaching retirement but has been stop-lossed (read: forced to stay in the military) for the deployment.
