HALO Casts Natascha McElhone, Bokeem Woodbine, and 4 More; 2 Join YOUR HONOR

Halo TV series casting

Showtime’s HALO adaptation has added Natascha McElhone, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, and Kate Kennedy to its cast.

The series—which is based on the Xbox franchise—previously cast Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, and Yerin Ha as a franchise newbie.

Here’s who the just-cast actors will play…

“McElhone will star as two characters — Dr. Catherine Halsey, the brilliant, conflicted and inscrutable creator of the Spartan supersoldiers and Cortana, the most advanced AI in human history, and potentially the key to the survival of the human race.

Woodbine will play Soren-066, a morally complex privateer at the fringes of human civilization whose fate will bring him into conflict with his former military masters and his old friend, the Master Chief.

Azmi will play Admiral Margaret Parangosky, the head of the Office of Naval Intelligence.

The series will also introduce three all-new characters to the Halo universe. British actor Kalu will play Spartan Vannak-134, a cybernetically augmented supersoldier conscripted at childhood who serves as the defacto deputy to the Master Chief. British actress Culzac will star in the role of Spartan Riz-028 – a focused, professional and deadly, cybernetically enhanced killing machine. Kennedy stars as Spartan Kai-125, an all-new courageous, curious and deadly Spartan supersoldier. Yerin Ha was previously announced playing the new character Kwan Ha, a shrewd, audacious 16-year-old from the Outer Colonies who meets Master Chief at a fateful time for them both.”

Additionally, YOUR HONOR has cast Michael Stuhlbarg and Sofia Black-D’Elia in the new Bryan Cranston-led limited series. Per Showtime, “Stuhlbarg will play Tommy, the much-feared head of a crime family. The 10-episode series is a legal thriller that rips through all strata of New Orleans society. Cranston stars as a respected judge whose son Adam (Hunter Doohan) is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices. Black-D’Elia will portray Frannie, Adam’s girlfriend.”
