Mission Impossible actress Michelle Monaghan has been cast in a dual role in which she will play twins with a secret in the upcoming Netflix series. Echo. Monaghan is no stranger to prestigious TV series, she earned a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the first season of True Detective on HBO and recently starring in Hulu’s Road.
The limited series will consist of seven episodes, and will tell the story of two adult-identical twins, Leni and Gina, played by Monaghan, who have swapped identities since childhood. The women have been secretly living double lives, unaware of their husbands and families, but all of that changes when a sister disappears. Brian Yorkey, who developed the book 13 reasons why into a series for Netflix and Quinton Peeples, who produced Escape and 11.22.63, will co-execute and act as host for the series.
In addition to Monaghan, many other actors have famously played twin roles, such as Armie Hammer in Social networks, Hayley Mills and Lindsay Lohan in Parent Trap movies and Tatiana Maslany (playing over a dozen copies of her) in Orphan Black.
And Monaghan is a great actress, but we can’t help but feel like the series is missing an opportunity to unite her with her doppelganger Ruth Wilson to twinge some fan service. -y is famous on screen. Ah good.
