In a season filled with star-studded casting announcements, Fox has taken the road less traveled and booked a young newcomer to anchor its Untitled Karyn Usher pilot.

Saxon Sharbino will star as Jane Forsythe, an orphaned 14-year-old girl who finds a mentor and surrogate father in a mysterious rogue agent. The character is described as  “fiesty” and “strong-willed.”
