And as of today, according to Deadline, Under the Dome has found its first regular cast member, Colin Ford, a young 16-year-old actor who previously appeared in a few episodes on the CW’s Supernatural, as the young Sam Winchester.
Colin has been officially cast to play the role of Joe, a “very smart kid who’s understandably freaked out when he discovers that the mysterious barrier covers the whole town — and both his parents are outside of it.”
