Are you ready to go to hell with Marvel and Hulu?
Marvel Television and Hulu have announced casting for Marvel’s Helstrom – the live-action series based on the popular Marvel comic book. The series will mark Marvel’s first foray into terror and is slated for debut in 2020.
In Marvel’s Helstrom, Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent,” said series Executive Producer and Showrunner Paul Zbyszewski. “From the beginning, we knew we’d need a group of actors who were multifaceted, who could play all the chords any great Marvel show promises to play, from dramatic thriller to comedy to action. It’s going to be really fun to watch them work.”
“Marvel Television is thrilled to have such an amazing cast that enriches Paul’s fantastic writing,” said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “The ensemble is the perfect way to bring our audience into our Adventure into Fear franchise causing delicious nightmares of what’s to come!”
Tom Austen (Grantchester, The Borgias) will play Daimon Helstrom. A professor of ethics who moonlights as an exorcist.
Sydney Lemmon (Succession, Fear the Walking Dead) will play Ana Helstrom. She runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others.
Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland, The Meyerowitz Stories) will play Victoria Helstrom. She has been institutionalized for twenty years.
Robert Wisdom (Ballers, Watchmen) will play Caretaker. A guardian of knowledge of the occult.
June Carryl (Mindhunter, Dead Women Walking) will play Dr. Louise Hastings. A psychologist with a strong faith but an open mind.
Ariana Guerra (Raising Dion, Insatiable) will play Gabriella Rosetti. A woman balancing logic and faith.
Alain Uy (The Passage, Paper Tigers) will play Chris Yen. Ana’s business partner and her closest friend.
I’m looking forward to meeting this group of characters in 2020. Are you familiar with the comic book? How do you feel about the cast?
