The Hollywood Reporter says that the SCI FI Channel has cast Ryan Carnes (“Desperate Housewives”) as “The Phantom.”

Carnes will play the well-known comic book hero, and Isabella Rossellini will guest star as the villainous Lithia, who is overseeing a mind-control experiment.

Additional “Phantom” cast members include Cameron Goodman and Sandrine Holt.

“The Phantom,” which began production on Monday, will air next year as a four-hour movie.
