Writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn (Neon Demon, Drive) took to Instagram to announce actor Billy Baldwin (Backdraft, Dirt Sexy Money) has joined the cast of the upcoming Amazon original crime drama series, Too Old to Die Young. Written by series director Refn and Ed Brubaker (Captain America: Winter Soldier, Westworld), Baldwin will star alongside Miles Teller (Whiplash, Thank You for Your Service) in a series that explores the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles by following killers' existential journeys in becoming samurai.
Here's a look at Refn's Instagram post:
