Stephen King Gives Acting a Shot in ‘Mr. Mercedes’ Cameo

Between The Dark Tower and It, Stephen King has had quite the 2017. We mustn’t forget, though, the TV adaptation of his 2014 novel Mr. Mercedes, which is currently airing on Audience Network.

 

The show’s sixth episode features a gloriously gory cameo from King. The show follows retired detective Bill Hodges as he chases after young serial killer Brady Hartsfield. In the sixth episode, Hartsfield goes for a job interview and imagines murdering everybody in the building, including the cook, played by Mr. King.
