After on-again, off-again news from the production of Star Trek: Discovery, the newest development is an intriguing one. Jason Isaacs, known to many fans as Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise, is set to join the cast as Captain Lorca. Isaacs will join Sonequa Martin-Green in a starring role on the show which will debut later this year.
This is exciting news for me, as I’ve been closely watching this strange and interesting incarnation of the popular franchise for some time. Isaacs is talent, and talent is a great thing. This show seems like its finally coming together.
Another interesting detail that I wasn’t aware of until I read it in Deadline is the decision to air the series on Netflix. I was under the impression that the show’s home would be CBS All Access. I’ll look into it further, but for now, even more good news.
So what do you think? Are you excited for Star Trek: Discovery? Is Jason Isaacs the right Captain for the job? Let me know/Drop a comment below!
