Although Swamp Thing wrapped production some time ago, cast members are still being revealed even as the show readies for its debut later this week.
Deadline reports Aquaman‘s Michael Beach will recur on the series as Nathan Ellery. Described as “a no-nonsense businessman with a ruthless streak, he is the “polished” head of a venture capital film. Nevertheless, the character is willing to go to extremes. Which means he will be in Swamp Thing’s (Derek Mears) sights before too long.
Besides Beach and Mears, the series stars Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, a CDC researcher forced to return to her hometown when a swamp-borne virus threatens the locals. Thec cast also included Andy Bean as Alec Holland — Swamp Thing’s human form — Will Patton, Jeryl Prescott, Virginia Madsen, Maria Sten, Jennifer Beals and Henderson Wade.
Swamp Thing debuts this Friday on DC Universe.
