This news was accompanied by confirmations that Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Selvig in the Thor/Avengers movies) and acclaimed stage actors Kyle Soller and Denise Gough would be joining the cast as well. Variety already scooped Skarsgard and Soller’s casting last week, but news of O’Reilly and Gough signing on was a welcome Friday evening surprise.
