Variety reports that Mark Pellegrino will be starring in Joint Body for writer/director Brian Jun. Shooting will begin next month in Illinois.

Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights) and Jim Parrack (True Blood) are also in the cast.

Joint Body focuses on a parolee who's abandoned by his ex-wife and then barred from seeing his young daughter. He starts a relationship with a lonely stripper, rescues her from an unlikely assailant and is then forced to re-evaluate his freedom as he runs from the law and deals with his past.

Pellegrino is presently on the final season of ABC's Lost. He will play Lucifer during the fifth season of CW Network's Supernatural.
