According to various reports, Goldberg and Skarsgard have signed on to join the cast of The Stand, based on author Stephen King's horror novel. It's being adapted for a new 10-episode series on the streaming service CBS All Access. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent company.)
In The Stand, almost all of the world's population dies from a weaponized plague called Captain Trips. Society breaks down with help from an ageless supernatural evil being named Randall Flagg (played by Skarsgard) who encourages violence and destruction.
