Two more characters in The CW’s The Lost Boys series have been cast with Rio Mangini (Everything Sucks, Teen Wolf) playing Sam and Del Zamora (Mayans MC) playing the grandfather and Lucy’s father, Frank. Corey Haim and Barnard Hughes played the characters, respectively, in the 1987 film.
The characters in the series are described as:
Sam, Michael’s younger brother, whose high level of literacy is matched by an equally high level of snark. He seems to be the only one not enchanted by Santa Carla — a sentiment he shares with a pair of local girls, the Frog Sisters.
Frank Garcia, Lucy’s father, a cantankerous old hippie who owns a beloved local bed and breakfast. In spite of his laid-back appearance, he’s a strict disciplinarian who probably knows more about the dark side of town than he cares to tell.
As previously announced, the Frog Sisters replace the Frog Brothers, played by Cheyenne Haynes (Camping) and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs). Sarah Hay (Flesh and Bone) will also play Mollie, a character that David turned into a vampire. Former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey will play the role of Michael; Kiele Sanchez (Kingdom) is playing the mother, Lucy; Medalion Rahimi (My Dead Ex) is playing Stella (a version of Star), and Dakota Shapiro (Valley of the Boom) is playing David. Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first Twilight movie is directing the pilot episode.
The CW The Lost Boy series is described as:
Written by Heather Mitchell, The Lost Boys is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Posey) and Sam Emerson move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers soon find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead…
Still mourning the death of her husband, Lucy is forced to move back home to Santa Carla — something she’s dreaded since causing a town scandal 27 years ago, when she ditched her boyfriend to run off with another man.
Lucy’s elder son Michael’s plan to attend Columbia Medical school is thrown off by the diagnosis that he shares the same genetic weakness that killed his father. The only thing that consoles him is the friendship he strikes up with Stella, a young woman who runs a concession stand on the Santa Carla boardwalk.
Stella, carefree and Californian, has an immediate spark with Michael, but she’s not single: Her boyfriend is the sexy, dangerous and immortal vampire David, who is sometimes scary and always intense. The leader of a vampire gang, he’s wildly in love with Stella, who’s the only one who can control him.
