Geoffrey Blake and Roslyn, WA are cast in The Man in the High Castle

More news regarding Ridley Scott and Amazon TV's The Man in the High Castle pilot. According to DeadlineGeoffrey Blake (Forrest Gump, Apollo 13) has been cast as "Doc", a mechanic who supplies doses of Benzedrine to his truckers to keep them on the road. Don't remember this character from the text, but hopefully it works for the show.

Meanwhile the town of Roslyn, Washington is the location of Canon City, Colorado. A film crew has been shooting scenes for the pilot, covering up iconic landmarks and bringing in 1960s memorabilia to give it that period look. Of course, having that classic Americana still exist in a timeline where the Axis defeated and occupied America is pretty slim, but I guess you need something to tell the audience that its the past. Right?

What do you think of these new developments? Still looking forward to seeing Scott's adaptation of The Man in the High Castle? Let us know in the comments.
