Joshua Jackson has been cast in the upcoming 'Fatal Attraction' series for streaming service Paramount+.

Joshua Jackson is best-known for his role as Pacey Witter in 'Dawson's Creek'.

His other TV credits include 'The Affair', 'Fringe', 'When They See Us' and 'Little Fires Everywhere'.

The actor is set to play an iteration of Michael Douglas' character Dan Gallagher from the 1987 psychological thriller 'Fatal Attraction'.

Joshua Jackson will star opposite Lizzy Caplan, who was cast as Alex Forrest (the character played by Glenn Close in the '80s movie) last year.

Like Jackson, Caplan's career also launched during the late '90s to '00s, following her roles in 'Freaks and Geeks' and 'Mean Girls'.

The 'Fatal Attraction' series has been described as a "deep-dive reimagining" of the original, which relates how a man becomes the object of his lover's obsession after they have a short extramarital affair.

According to a press release, the show will "explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity, through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control."

Alexandra Cunningham ('Dirty John') will serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.

Nicole Clemens, president of original scripted series at Paramount+, said of the casting: "Joshua is an incredible talent who creates beautifully complicated characters on both the screen and stage.

"He and Lizzy are perfectly matched to tell a nuanced and modern narrative about the complexities of the human psyche.

"We're thrilled to partner with them to bring this provocative and captivating story to a new generation."
