Casting News - March 3, 2017

ABC's The Inhumans; Amazon's Jack Ryan; HBO's Insecure; Showtime's The Chi; and Starz's Ash vs. Evil Dead.

  • Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglom will round out the main cast of the upcoming drama. Ikwuakor will play Gorgon, the cousin of Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and a member of the royal family who is the leader of Attilan's military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. He would rather fight than talk to solve is problems. Cornish will play Crystal, Medusa's (Serinda Swan) sister and the youngest member of the royal family who has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent, she is also deeply devoted to her family. Moh will play Triton, Black Bolt's cousin who is calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is the ability to live underwater. Balmores will play Auran, the head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan. Woglom will play a mysterious character who is smart, intense and focused - so focused that oftentimes social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She's primed to be swept up in an adventure.
  • Peter Fonda (Ulee's Gold) has joined the cast of the upcoming drama starring John Krasinski and Abbie Cornish. He will play Cathy Mueller's (Cornish) father. He will appear in the first episode, with an option for him to recur throughout the rest of the season.
  • After recurring in the first season, Amanda Seales has been promoted to series regular for the comedy's upcoming second season. Se plays Tiffany, one of Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly's (Yvonne Orji) friends from college. She believes she has the perfect, aspirational relationship with her husband, Derek (Wade Allain-Marcus).
  • Armando Riesco (Power, The Family) has booked a series regular role on the upcoming drama created by Lena Waithe. He will play a seasoned homicide detective working the turbulent streets of Chicago's South Side neighborhoods. When one of his street informant's kids gets murdered, he mistakenly gives him information that leads to a senseless death of yet another kid. This detective has a soft spot for some of his regulars and finds himself torn at times between his colleagues and his neighborhood.
  • Arielle Carver-O'Neill (Worst Year of My Life, Again!) has landed a series regular role on the horror comedy's upcoming third season. She will play Brandy, a smart middle-class American high school senior whose life is up-ended when she finds herself caught up in violent demonic events.
