The CW's Superman & Lois and Netflix's American Primeval.

  • Betty Gilpin, Dane DeHaan, Shea Whigham, Joe Tippett, Jai Courtney, Kyle Bradley Davis, Nick Hargrove, Derek Hinkey, Saura Lightfoot Leon, Preston Mota and Shawnee Pourier have been cast as series regulars on the upcoming limited series starring Taylor Kitsch.
  • Gilpin (GLOW, Mrs. Davis) will play Sara Rowell, an extremely capable woman with an air of composure and grace that seems out of place in Fort Bridger as she seeks a guide across the frontier for her and her son, Devin.
  • DeHaan (Lisey's Story, The Staircase) will play Jacob Pratt, a Mormon leading his family across the frontier to join other settlers in Utah.
  • Whigham (Perry Mason, Gaslit) will play Jim Bridger, a grizzled realist but a decent man. He runs his namesake Fort, a popular stopping point for settlers and trappers.
  • Tippett (Mare of Easttown, The Morning Show) will play James Wolsey, a Mormon man leading a militia of men who don't possess the moral code they claim they do.
  • Courtney (The Terminal List, Kaleidoscope) will play Virgil Cutter, a trapper and bounty hunter who sees opportunity in the naivet√© of others.
  • Davis (American Horror Story, Enlisted) will play Tilly, one of Cutter's trappers. He is a nasty, dangerous man who doesn't mind killing to get ahead and rather enjoys it when others fear him.
  • Hargrove (Charmed, Devotion) will play Cottrell, a young man that helps out around Fort Bridger and serves as Jim Bridger's right hand.
  • Hinkey (Walker: Independence) will play Red Feather, the leader of a renegade group of Crow warriors known as the Wolf Clan.

  • Michael Cudlitz has booked a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. He previously starred for five seasons in NBC/TNT's Southland, three seasons in AMC's The Walking Dead, in ABC's one-season comedy The Kids Are Alright and in CBS' one-season drama Clarice.
  • He will play Lex Luthor, known to the world as the visionary billionaire behind LexCorp. Secretly, the criminal underworld knows who Lex truly is: a brutal psychopath who terrorizes anyone he crosses paths with. When Lex debuts this season, it's been years since he dropped out of the public eye and he's re-emerging hellbent on correcting a personal injustice by enacting revenge on the two people he feels have wronged him - Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch).
