Pablo Schreiber (“American Gods”) was recently set to star as Master Chief in Showtime’s upcoming “Halo” TV series, an adaptation of the video game franchise, and Deadline brings us the latest casting news today. Danny Sapani (“Penny Dreadful”), Olive Gray (“Half Moon Investigations”) and Charlie Murphy (“Peaky Blinders”) have been set as series regulars.

Natascha McElhone (“Californication”) and Emmy nominee Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”) recently landed lead roles alongside Schreiber, and the cast also includes Shabana Azmi (Fire), Bentley Kalu (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Natasha Culzac (“The Witcher”), Kate Kennedy (“Catastrophe”) and Yerin Ha (Reef Break).

The project, produced by 343 Industries and Amblin Television, is said to be Showtime’s “most ambitious series ever,” promised to “enthrall fans while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe.” Expect it in early 2021.
