Hulu's high profile limited series 'Catch-22' is going to showcase upcoming actor Harrison Osterfield in a key role. Directed by George Clooney and written by Luke Davies and David Michôd, the plot of the series will be based on the extremely popular Joseph Heller novel.

'Catch-22', the TV series, will hail from Paramount Television and Anonymous Content. The story is set in Italy around the time of the World War II, and follows the story of Yossarian (played by Christopher Abbott), who is an incomparable and expertly skilled bombardier for the US Air Force. Yossarian faces the dangerous threat of thousands of people he has never even met in his life, trying to kill him - something that makes him really furious.

Yet, as the story unfolds, it is revealed that the real problem is not this enemy with a desire to end his life; it is his own army, that keeps on increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Osterfield's character on the show — Snowden — is a tail gunner who is clueless about what awaits him on his first mission. 

Having already worked in several short films, Osterfield is now set to make his big debut alongside his other show, Lionsgate's 'Chaos Walking', which is about to release in March 2019. He has also shared screen space with the new age Spiderman, Tom Holland, in the movie 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', but that role was just a blurred out extra in the background. Yet a little-known fact about Osterfield is his real-life bromance with Holland as the two happen to be the tightest of BFFs.

However, 'Catch-22' isn't the only big news for Hulu as its upcoming psychological-horror drama series, 'Castle Rock', has a new recurring addition in its cast, in the form of Noel Fisher. The 'Shameless' alum is all set to enter the world created by J.J. Abrams and Stephen King in the form of the TV series that gets his name from the fictional town in King's native Maine, that also gets featured several times in his novels, novellas, and short stories. 

The TV adaptation of 'Castle Rock' is set in a Stephen King multiverse, presented by Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. According to the producers, it combines mythology and the quintessential character storytelling of the most popular works by Stephen King. Fisher is set to play Zalewski, a Shawshank prison guard who somehow gets heavily involved with the discovery of mysterious inmate, who happens to be a rather dark character too.

Apart from this show, Fisher's most significant works happen to be the role of Mickey Milkovich in the US version of the Showtime series, 'Shameless', a recent appearance on National Geographic’s limited series, 'The Long Road Home', and also CBS' upcoming fall drama series, 'The Red Line'.
