Emmy Rossum has been cast to play Tom Holland‘s mother in the upcoming Apple TV series titled The Crowded Room. According to Deadline, the storyline centers on people “who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness.”
The first season is inspired by Daniel Keyes’ biography, The Minds of Billy Milligan. Holland will portray Danny Sullivan, who is “loosely” based on Billy Milligan. Milligan “was the first person acquitted of a crime because of multiple-personality disorder, now known as dissociative identity disorder.” The extent of Rossum’s role in the series is currently unclear, though fans of the novel have suggested that she would only appear in flashbacks. Amanda Seyfried is another notable cast member, who will play the part of a clinical psychologist.
