Men of many talents, huh!

The highly anticipated project from The Weeknd has got another recognisable name added to the cast list. 

Variety has reported that Australian singer/actor Troye Sivan has been given the nod for a recurring role throughout the six-part series. 

The Weeknd will also play an on-screen role in the series, as well as be an executive producer.

A lot of the story has been kept well guarded so far, but from what we've been able to find out is that the storyline is set against the backdrop of the music industry.

The series is said to center on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult, who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol.

Along with The Weeknd and Sivan, Lily-Rose Depp has also been added to the cast list. 

At the moment there is no release date for the series, but like the good people we are, we'll be sure to keep you updated.
