Danny McBride Cast in ALIEN: COVENANT

In perhaps the weirdest casting news I've seen in awhile, The Wrap is reporting that Danny McBride will be joining Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterson in the film that will link Prometheus to the Alien franchise.

He's not just in a side role either, they're saying he's billed to co-star in Alien: Covenant!

Turns out Kenny Powers is a huge movie geek and that's how he and director Ridley Scott began to discuss this role in the first place. I've got to admit I'm intrigued to see McBride do something outside the world of comedy, which he made his mark in Hollywood with. Hopefully he's the Maverick we all want him to be!
