Following the casting of Jamie Chung and Blair Redford, FOX’s upcoming currently-untitled live-action X-Men series has brought in some more new additions.

Variety is reporting that Stephen Moyer, Sean Teale and Natalie Alyn Lind have joined the new show. True Blood’s Moyer will be playing Reed, “an ambitious attorney trying to balance the demands of his job at the DA’s office with his responsibilities to his family.” Skins’ Teale has landed the role of Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, a completely new photon-manipulating mutant created for the show and described as “a passionate and strong-willed fighter who sometimes let his emotions overrule reason.” Lind, best known to genre fans as Silver St. Cloud in Gotham, will be playing a character called Lauren, described as “smart, pretty, popular, organized and already ahead on her college applications. She is the model of a perfect kid.”

This new to-be-titled series will focus on two ordinary parents who discover that their children have mutant abilities. Forced to go on the run from the government, the family find themselves joining an underground network of mutants who are fighting to survive in this hostile world. Natalie Alyn Lind is playing one of the children of said family, while Stephen Moyer’s Reed is the patriarch of the family.
