Gracepoint Finds Their 'Nige' As Stephen Louis Grush Joins the Cast

Stephen Louis Grush (Lucky 7, The Mob Doctor) has joined the cast of Gracepoint as Vince Novik. The character is based on that of Nige Carter played by Joe Sims in the original series Broadchurch.

Vince Novik is Mark Lassiter's (Michael Peña) best friend and hard-working plumbing apprentice. Vince is loyal to Mark but the latter hasn't given him the raise he was promised and Vince has mounting debt and a sick mother to look after.

Gracepoint is a ten-episode event series for Fox TV based on the award winning UK drama Broadchurch. The series follows events that unfold in a sleepy Californian seaside town after the tragic and mysterious death of a local young boy, Danny, the son of Mark. David Tennant reprises his lead role as the police detective heading the investigation into the murder: in Gracepoint, Alec Hardy becomes Detective Emmett Carver. Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) will play his reluctant partner, Detective Ellie Miller while Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall will executive produce the new adaptation. 

Principal photography begins on Gracepoint on Tuesday 28th January in Oak Bay Village on Vancouver Island, BC. and continues through to late May. The series is due to premiere as part of Fox's Fall season.
