Oscar winner Christopher Walken is set as a lead alongside Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, Tramell Tillman, Jen Tullock, Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, and John Turturro in Severance, Apple’s upcoming workplace thriller drama directed by and executive produced by Ben Stiller.
Severance takes place at Lumen Industries, a company that’s looking to take work-life balance to a new level with a “severance procedure,” which separates work and out-of-work memories. Scott stars as Mark, an employee with a dark past trying to put himself back together.
Walken will play Burt, the department Head of Optics and Design at Lumen Industries.
The role reunites Walken with Turturro, with whom he starred in Turturro’s feature The Jesus Rolls. He also recently starred in The War With Grandpa alongside Robert De Niro and Uma Thurman.
