Greg Kinnear Joins CBS All Access' THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Greg Kinnear is set to appear in "The Traveler" episode of the CBS All Access' "The Twilight Zone," opposite previously announced Steven Yeun, according to Deadline.

Previously announced cast members include host and narrator Jordan Peele in addition to Yeun, John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Sanaa Lathan, Adam Scott and Kumail Nanjiani.

THE TWILIGHT ZONE is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films. Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.

The original "The Twilight Zone" premiered on Oct. 2, 1959 on CBS. The series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. "The Twilight Zone" became a worldwide phenomenon as it used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959 to 1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional dramas could not. Every episode of the original series is available to stream now on CBS All Access.

Kinnear is best known for his starring role in James L. Brooks' As Good As It Gets, which earned him Oscar, Golden Globe and Screen Actors' Guild nominations. He can currently be seen in the sixth season of Netflix's House of Cards. He is set to play Bob Hope in dramedy Misbehaviour. His other TV credits include Amazon's Electric Dreams, Rake, Modern Family, The Kennedys and HBO film Confirmation, among others.
