Hot on the heels of Mary J. Blige joining The Umbrella Academy last week, now comes news on four further new additions for the hotly anticipated small screen adaptation of Gerard Way’s Eisner Award-winning work.
As per Deadline, House of Cards’ Colm Feore, Mindhunter’s Cameron Britton, Breaking Bad’s Adam Godley, and Revenge’s Ashley Madekwe have join the series.
In terms of their roles, Feore – who genre fans will also likely know for having a pivotal role in the sadly turd-tastic The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – will be playing Sir Reginald Hargreeves, the adoptive father of the seven supernatural-powered children at the centre of this tale. Elsewhere, Britton will be playing time-travelling hitman Hazel, Godley is taking on the motion capture gig of genetically engineered chimp Pogo, and Madekwe has the task of playing Detective Patch of the local police department.
Already on board for the series are Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castaneda, Aidan Gallagher, and Robert Sheehan.
Fargo and Altered Carbon’s Steve Blackman is serving as executive producer and showrunner on the show, with it set to premiere its ten-episode first season later this year.
