AceShowbiz - More actors have joined the cast on upcoming revival of "The Twilight Zone" on CBS All Access. Fans have been given one more reason to further hype the new series as it has tapped Chris O'Dowd to star in one episode.

According to Deadline, the "Get Shorty" star is set to make an appearance in an episode titled "The Blue Scorpion". He will star opposite Amy Landecker in the episode. Meanwhile, detail of his character has yet to be revealed.

Hailing from "Get Out" director Jordan Peele, who also serves as the host and narrator of the reboot. "The Twilight Zone" have enlisted a ton of talents for its cast. Among them are Steven Yeun, Taissa Farmiga, Zazie Beetz, Betty Gabriel, Seth Rogen, Kumail Nanjiani, Sanaa Lathan, John Cho, Greg Kinnear and Adam Scott.

Kinnear and Yeun are set to share screen in an episode titled "The Traveler", while Lathan will appear in an episode called "Rewind". Fellow cast member Jacob Tremblay will portray the lead character in an episode titled "The Wunderkind" in which Cho joins in a supporting role capacity.

Last month, CBS All Access dropped its first full-length trailer for the new show, featuring unsettling coincidences, non-existent memories as well as disruptions of the natural order of the universe. It glimpsed a slew of episodes from the upcoming series, hinting at interesting elements that will take the center part on the series.

Created by Rod Sterling in 1959, the original "The Twilight Zone" was a classic science fiction anthology series, with each science fiction, fantasy, or horror episode playing out a self-contained, moralistic story, often with a memorable twist. It ran for five seasons until 1964.
