The Staircase Dane DeHaan

Dane DeHaan has joined the cast of the true-crime limited series The Staircase at HBO Max. The adaptation is based on various books and reports on the case of Michael Peterson, who was convicted in 2003 of murdering his wife Kathleen two years earlier. The charge was reduced to manslaughter in 2017, and Peterson subsequently was released from prison. He had claimed his wife died after falling down the stairs at their home after consuming alcohol and Valium, but an autopsy concluded she died from multiple injuries, including blows to the back of her head with a blunt object.

DeHaan joins previously announced cast members Colin Firth, Toni Collette, Rosemarie DeWitt, Juliette Binoche, Parker Posey, and Sophie Turner. DeHaan will play Clayton Peterson, Michael Peterson’s son.

The eight-episode series is being directed by Antonio Campos, from a script by American Crime Story writer Maggie Cohn.
