Sam Neill stranded. Sam Neill, who recently starred in Showtime’s The Tudors, will take on another period piece in his next TV gig.

Neill, along with Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings) and Joss Ackland (White Mischief), have joined the cast of NBC’s drama Crusoe, a retelling of Daniel Defoe’s classic novel Robinson Crusoe.

The international production is set to begin shooting soon in the U.K., South Africa and the Seychelles. It’s slated to air on Friday nights on NBC in the fall.

Neill played Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the first season of The Tudors. The Jurassic Park star earned an Emmy nomination for his role in NBC’s telefilm Merlin 10 years ago.
