The Main Cast for Netflix's JUPITER'S LEGACY Has Been Announced and Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb will Star
It looks like Netflix finally has their main cast locked in for Jupiter’s Legacy. A press release was recently sent out revealing the cast, and now we know that Josh Duhamel will be Sheldon Sampson/The Utopian and Elena Kampouris will be Chloe as previously reported, then Leslie Bibb will be Lady Liberty, Andrew Horton will play Brandon, Brain-Wave will be played by Ben Daniels, Matt Lanter will play Skyfox, and Mark Wade will be The Flare.
Jupiter’s Legacy will be the first project from Netflix’s Millarverse based on Mark Millar’s graphic novels. No release date has been announced, but I would imagine we’ll be seeing it sometime next year.
Below you will find details on the characters:
JOSH DUHAMEL is Sheldon Sampson:
Sheldon Sampson (The Utopian) is the storied leader of the superhero team The Union. But times have changed, and he doesn’t understand the world we live in anymore. Or his own family.
BEN DANIELS is Walter Sampson:
Walter Sampson (Brain-Wave) is Sheldon’s older brother. A man of vast intellect and cunning who, unlike Sheldon, isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Or bloody.
LESLIE BIBB is Grace Sampson:
Grace Sampson (Lady Liberty) is Sheldon’s wife and one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. She doesn’t always agree with Sheldon, but strives to balance his ideals with the reality of the modern, often violent, world they live in.
ELENA KAMPOURIS is Chloe Sampson:
Chloe Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s daughter. Rejecting everything her parents stand for, Chloe has forged her own hedonistic path far away from them. A path that threatens to go against everything her parents have sworn to protect.
ANDREW HORTON is Brandon Sampson:
Brandon Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s son. In training to assume the mantle of The Utopian and become the new leader of The Union, he struggles to live up to his father’s mythic legend.
MIKE WADE is Fitz Small:
Fitz Small (The Flare) is the heart and soul of The Union. Despite suffering injuries that ended his career as a superhero, he continues to be one of the most valued members of the team. And is often the only thing holding them together in the face of an increasingly hostile world.
MATT LANTER is George Hutchence:
George Hutchence (Skyfox) was Sheldon Sampson's closest friend and ally before turning against him and the rest of his teammates in The Union. Now considered the greatest supervillain in the world, George plots his revenge on the teammates he believes betrayed him.
Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) serves as showrunner and executive producer on the series and he will write and direct the first episode.
