Noah Hawley’s Alien Series Rounds Out Cast

No big surprises here as the Alien: Romulus title is made official, plus we get a very weird poster for the upcoming Fede Alvarez movie.

Noah Hawley’s Alien series rounds out its cast ahead of it resuming production. The recent report from Variety adds some new names to those we have already heard. Yesterday we shared news that Timothy Olyphant has been cast as a synthetic in a lead role in the show.

Here are the new names as per Variety.

‘Babou Ceesay (“Guerrilla,” “Damilola”), Jonathan Ajayi (“Wonder Woman 1984,” “Noughts and Crosses”), Erana James (“Uproar,” “The Wilds”), Lily Newmark (“Pin Cushion,” “Sex Education”), Diêm Camille (“Washington Black,” “Alex Rider 3”), and Adrian Edmondson (“War & Peace,” “A Spy Among Friends”) have all been cast in the series.’

‘They join previously announced cast members Sydney Chandler, Timothy Olyphant, Alex Lawther, Essie Davis, David Rysdahl, Samuel Blenkin, and Adarsh Gourav.’

Not much we can do speculation wise about this cast without more details. However, bet you Ade Edmondson is playing a baddie. I say that simple because most of his movie career has so far been playing bad guys. To be honest though, we are still short on details around this show, so all bets are off. We do know it is set between the first two movies within the official timeline. The show is also primarily set on Earth as per this report from the trade.

Hawley’s Alien series already began production pre-SAG-AFTRA strikes but was put on hold despite being an Equity production. Variety says production is expected to resume early 2024.

According to the news earlier this week, Chandler (lead) is set to play some kind of Human/Synthetic Hybrid alongside mentor Olyphant. Check out the related link above for all those details.
