Who is in the cast?
The cast is led by recent Oscar winner Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk), who previously worked with Lindelof on The Leftovers, and Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers), who will be playing an older Adrian Veidt (aka, Ozymandias), a main character and villain from the original work. King appears to be one of the superheros, although little is known about her role. As for Irons, based on the trailer, his character appears to have remained in power with a very systematic, utopian view on society… which happens to be failing and more dystopian than anything.
The show is also made up of a large ensemble cast featuring Yahya Abdul-Mateen Il (Aquaman), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Tim Blake Nelson (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Louis Gossett Jr. (Roots), as well as Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby), Andrew Howard (Limitless), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Frances Fisher (Titanic), Jacob Ming-Trent (Superfly), Sarah Vickers (Endeavour), and Jean Smart (24). Little to no information is known about their regularity on the show or who they will be playing, other than Smart is said to be an FBI agent.
James Wolk (Tell Me a Story) and Dustin Ingram (Good Trouble) both have reccurring roles, Wolk reportedly as a senator. And according to Deadline, Hong Chau (Downsizing) will play a key role. Plus, child actors Dylan Schombing, Adelynn Spoon, and Lily Rose Smith will also appear.
That's a big cast! And not a lot of information! Basically, all we know right now is that some cast members will be reviving infamous and beloved characters from the comics, like Irons, and a handful of them will be playing entirely new roles.
