Alan Ball Casts Ben Whishaw in His New HBO Pilot


Ben Whishaw, who played Keats in Bright Star and has some sexual orientation, will be the lead in Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Alan Ball's latest HBO pilot about death, All Signs of Death. Whishaw will play a "twenty something slacker who stumbles into a career as a crime scene cleaner, only to find himself entangled with a murder mystery, a femme fatale and the loose ends of his own past," but at least not vampires.
