Jennifer Beals joins the Swamp Thing TV show


Jennifer Beals has joined the cast of the Swamp Thing series at DC Universe.

She will be playing Sheriff Lucilia Cable. Described as tough as nails and pragmatic, Cable’s fierce devotion to her son, Matt, is rivalled only by her sworn duty to serve and protect the town of Marais. As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, she must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.

When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.

Swamp Thing was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson in 1971. Then Alan Moore pumped fresh life into the character back in the 80s. Swamp Thing has starred in a 1982 live-action movie by Wes Craven, along with a previous live-action series from 1990-1993.

The show is due in 2019. Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman will serve as writers and executive producers. James Wan and Michael Clear will also executive produce via Wan’s Atomic Monster banner. Rob Hackett of Atomic Monster will serve as co-producer. Atomic Monster will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Crystal Reed (Gotham, Teen Wolf) has been cast as Abby Arcane while Maria Sten will play Liz Tremayne. While the character of Alec Holland is waiting to be cast, it seems that Swamp Thing will be played by Derek Mears (Friday the 13th, Predators, Twin Peaks: The Return) in a practical suit. Still waiting for official confirmation on that though.
