Actor Ben Kingsley will star in Spike TV’s mini-series Tut, the network announced Monday.

Academy Award-winning Kingsley (Schindler’s List, Ghandi, Bugsy) will portray “Ay,” the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun who wields tremendous power and influence as the top advisor to the Egyptian ruler, according to the network. `Tut,' which is Spike TV's first scripted series in eight years, will debut on the network in 2015.

“Tut is the biggest and most ambitious project in Spike’s history,” said Sharon Levy, executive vice president of original series for Spike TV. “Who better to lead the cast than one of the greatest actors of our generation -- Ben Kingsley.”
