Following last month’s announcement that Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt will headline the upcoming Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, now comes word of some further cast additions for this new show.
Marvel has officially moved to bring in a further six series regulars for the Freeform series. These new additions are Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito, and J.D. Evermore.
The full details and blurb on these new cast members reads:
Andrea Roth (Rescue Me, Blue Bloods) is set to play Melissa Bowen, Tandy’s mom, who is the eternal optimist despite the struggles to adapt to her new existence. Gloria Reuben (ER, Mr. Robot) will play Tyrone’s mother, Adina Johnson, who invests every aspect of her being into giving her son the life she believes he deserves. Joining her is Miles Mussenden (Bloodline, Queen Sugar) as Tyrone’s father, Michael Johnson, who trudges through his desk job to keep his family safe and happy.
In addition, Carl Lundstedt (Grey’s Anatomy, Conviction) will play Liam, a salt-of-the-earth townie who operates as Tandy’s partner in crime while moonlighting as her boyfriend, with James Saito (Life of Pi, The Devil’s Advocate) as Dr. Bernard Sanjo who has been an emotional cornerstone in Tyrone’s life; they have a most unusual relationship, and J.D. Evermore (True Detective, The Walking Dead) as Detective Connors, who is a contradiction of a man, embracing an intimidating persona that overcompensates for a secret he keeps close to the vest.
“We are incredibly excited to be underway on our first Marvel project with such a talented group of actors that really enhance the world that our Cloak & Dagger live in,” said Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming & Development, Freeform.
Executive producer and showrunner, Joe Pokaski added “It’s been important to us from day one that ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’ is about character and emotion above all. We’re so excited to have assembled a murderers’ row of talented actors who can execute on that, and then some.”
“We’re thrilled to fill out the rest of the talented cast on ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’ and join with Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph to make a show that fans, new and old, will enjoy,” said Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television and executive producer.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is being described as a coming-of-age series, with Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson/Cloak and Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger. The titular pair come from vastly different backgrounds but are brought together by the unique powers that they each have.
The current plan is for the show to premiere on the Freeform network in Winter 2018.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
