Next year’s sci-fi epic Sense8 now has its cast, and it includes a familiar face from Stargate.
Brian J. Smith has joined the new drama series from the Wachowskis, written by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. He will reportedly play one of the show’s eight central characters.
“The series follows eight characters around the world who, in the aftermath of a tragic death, find themselves linked to each other mentally and emotionally,” Straczynski told Deadline. “They can not only see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, they have access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.”
Filming will commence this summer in San Francisco, Chicago, the United Kingdom, Seoul, Mumbai, Nairobi, Berlin, and Mexico City. The truly international cast also includes Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews (LOST), Tuppence Middleton (Jupiter Ascending), Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Aml Ameen, Tena Desae, Doona Bae, Max Riemelt, Alfonso Herrera, Erendira Ibarra, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Silvestre, and Terrence Mann.
