These days, Scott Patterson is known to fans of the CW’s Aliens in America as the perpetually befuddled Gary Tolchuck — but those of you who remember him as Agent Strahm in Saw IV needn’t worry: He’ll be back for Saw V.
Patterson spoke with IGN Movies recently about the upcoming sequel, admitting that he hadn’t seen a script yet (the producers are “very secretive”), but letting slip that production begins March 17. Unfortunately, when it comes to storyline details, he’s just as in the dark as the rest of us:
They don’t give you much. And we’re not really permitted to talk about it. The level of secrecy…I signed all these forms. They could take away my house if I mentioned a storyline.
Patterson’s Saw contract actually calls for him to stick around through Saw VI, but he harbors no illusions about that providing any measure of job security; as he tells IGN, “they can kill off any character at any time…it’s their option.”
