Dreyfuss Going Mystic for the Tin Man


Actor Richard "Jaws" Dreyfuss has joined Sci Fi Channel's upcoming six-hour miniseries Tin Man,
from RHI Entertainment, joining Zooey Deschanel and Alan "Nightcrawler"
Cumming in a 're-imagined' take on author L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz books.

Slated to start production this April in Vancouver, the mini will premiere on Sci Fi in December.

Dreyfuss will take on the role of 'Mystic Man', a wizard who holds the
key to revealing the destiny of one woman who can save The Outer Zone
(aka the 'O.Z.') from dark magic.

Described by Sci Fi as a 'psychedelic, often twisted' take on the original book, Tin Man
follows Dorothy Gale (aka 'DG'), plunging into another world to
discover her true identity while battling winged-monkey-bats. She is
joined by 'Glitch' (Cumming), an odd man missing half his brain, 'Raw',
a quietly powerful wolf-like creature longing for inner courage and
'Cain' a former policeman (known in the O.Z. as a 'Tin Man', with a tin
badge) seeking vengeance for his 'scarred heart'.

Ultimately DG's destiny leads her to an emotional and terrifying
showdown with wicked sorceress 'Azkadellia', with the fate of the O.Z.
hanging in the balance.

Tin Man is executive produced by Robert Halmi, Sr., Robert
Halmi, Jr., with co-writers Steven Long Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle.
Director is Nick Willing.

Dreyfuss received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor in Mr. Holland's Opus and won an Oscar for Best Actor in The Goodbye Girl.
