‘The Watcher’: Ryan Murphy Adds Jennifer Coolidge to Talented Cast

Ryan Murphy’s cast for The Watcher series has another star on an already impressive roster with the announcement of Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie).

Coolidge, hot off her starring role in The White Lotus, joins previously announced Bobby Cannavale and Naomi Watts in the limited series based on the chilling true story of a family who were forced to abandon their newly purchased home after they received numerous threatening letters from a man who identified himself only as “The Watcher.”

One letter reportedly included the following:

“It has been years and years since the young blood ruled the hallways of the house. Have you found all of the secrets it holds yet? Will the young blood play in the basement? Or are they too afraid to go down there alone. I would [be] very afraid if I were them. It is far away from the rest of the house. If you were upstairs you would never hear them scream.

“Will they sleep in the attic? Or will you all sleep on the second floor? Who has the bedrooms facing the street? I’ll know as soon as you move in. It will help me to know who is in which bedroom. Then I can plan better.”

The gorgeous 1905 Dutch Colonial home was eventually sold by the family.

It’s the perfect setup for a horror movie, or series as the case may be, and Murphy is stacking the deck with his impressive cast. The Watcher is part of the producer/creator’s deal with Netflix.
