Indian American actor Rizwan Manji, who appears in a recurring role on Syfy’s “The Magicians” and on the upcoming third season of USA’s “Mr. Robot,” has joined the cast of the Robert Krzykowski-helmed drama, “The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot,” reports Deadline.

The film, which is in the middle of principal photography, is from Epic Pictures, and stars Sam Elliot as an American war veteran.

Written by Krzykowski, the Deadline report adds, the story is set in 1987 and follows Calvin Barr (Elliott) who, decades after serving in World War II and assassinating Adolf Hitler, is contacted to lead the charge on hunting down the fabled Bigfoot who is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness.

The film also stars Aidan Turner, and Caitlin FitzGerald. It is produced by Krzykowski, Lucky McKee, Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson. Epic Pictures is financing and handling worldwide sales.

Manji is also playing a recurring role of a real estate agent, Ray Butani, in CBC’s comedy sitcom, “Schitt’s Creek.” His other TV credits include Fox’s crime-comedy drama series, “Backstrom,” and the Nickelodeon show, “Bella and the Bulldogs.”
