Shawn Ashmore has joined the cast of Fox's serial killer drama pilot.

The project - from The Vampire Diaries co-creator Kevin Williamson - will star Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy, a retired FBI profiler.

Hardy returns to work when the murderous Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) uses technology to create a cult of fellow serial killers.

X-Men star Ashmore will play a junior FBI agent who assists Bacon's character, according to Deadline.

The Vampire Diaries director Marcos Siega will helm the currently-untitled pilot, which will be produced by Warner Bros TV and Williamson's studio-based Outerbanks Entertainment.
