under the dome britt robertson angie stephen king secret circle gi 'Under the Dome': Britt Robertson of 'The Secret Circle' cast as Angie in the Stephen King show

The town in “Under the Dome” is starting to fill up. The latest casting news about the CBS summer show (which comes from Steven Spielberg and Stephen King) is that Britt Robertson will play the role of Angie.

The star of “The Secret Circle” and “Life Unexpected,” Robertson’s new character is a pretty, young waitress. Angie has always dreamed of leaving her small town of Chester’s Mill and studying to become a nurse. That is most likely not going to happen once the events of the TV show begin.

Robertson join a few other parts that have been cast for the series. Alexander Koch will play the role of Junior Rennie, the disturbed young man who loves Angie, Natalie Martinez (“Detroit 1-8-7”) is Linda, a sheriff’s deputy desperate to keep order, and Colin Ford (“Supernatural”) will play an intelligent teen in the town.

“Under the Dome” will air on CBS this summer as a 13-part series. The story is based on a book of the same name by Stephen King and focuses on a small town that suddenly and inexplicably gets cut off from the outside world by a transparent dome. As time passes, the townspeople try to figure out a way to escape while even survival becomes an issue.

Steven Spielberg is producing the show, which could extend to additional seasons if successful.
