Jason Isaacs and Patrick J. Adams have been cast into NBC's adaptation of Rosemary's Baby. Adams will play the male lead alongside Zoe Saldana, according to Deadline, who first reported the casting additions. He plays Saldana's husband. The young actor is best known for starring in USA's Suits. British actor Isaacs, who appeared in the Harry Potter film franchise as Draco Malfoy's father, will also be in the event series. He has been cast to play John Cassavetes' character in the movie, who was the coven-leader Roman Castevet. Saldana was cast a couple weeks ago into the lead role as the pregnant Rosemary who soon finds herself becoming paranoid about her neighbors after moving into a Paris apartment. Her paranoia stretches to wonder what her husband and the creepy neighbors might have in mind for her unborn baby. NBC's will only be a four-hour miniseries. Filming is set to begin in February in Paris. Agnieszka Holland is set to direct. Rosemary's Baby was originally written by Ira Levin and later adapted into a film by Roman Polanski image: USA Network/NBC
