Mason Dye, Haaz Sleiman, David Petruzzi join Nikki Toscano’s Red Zone

by April Vickery

Big week for RED ZONE! Three more members have joined the cast as “Silas”, “Amir” and “Mark”.

UCzGDCmxNineteen year old Mason Dye will be playing the role of “Mark.” Mason is mostly known for his role in the TV series, DIARY OF AN AMERICAN CHEERLEADER but more recently for the 2014 on screen adaptation of the controversial 1979 novel FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC by V.C. Andrews.  In the Lifetime original movie, Mason played the role of “Christopher” the oldest brother of the children growing up in the attic of their cruel grandmother’s home. Just a few days ago, it was announced that Dye will also have a reoccurring role on season 4 of MTV’s TEEN WOLF.

HAAZ SLEIMANThe role of “Amir” will be played by Haaz Sleiman. Although the Lebanon born actor was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his work in film as “Tarek” in ‘THE VISITOR’, he is no stranger to television. Haaz’s resume includes NURSE JACKIE, NIKITA, 24 and COVERT AFFAIRS. He is also an accomplished stage actor. He appeared in the NY play FOOD AND FADWA.

DavidPetruzzi“Silas” will played by newcomer David Petruzzi. By the looks of his resume with roles in SAVE ME (2007) DIRTY GIRL (2010) and FLEETWOOD (2006) this man will be bringing some serious acting chops to RED ZONE.

RED ZONE is shaping up to look like an amazing series and I can’t wait to see it! Welcome to Wilmywood, gentlemen. We are excited to have you.
