According to Deadline.com, little-known actor Cameron Cuffe has been cast to play the role of Seg-El in the “Krypton” TV series.
Described as athletic and quietly confident, Seg-El is the scion of the once-prosperous El family and is blessed with an intuitive brilliance for all things technical. He now is living in Krypton’s lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank.
The London-born Cuffe is a graduate of the Lir Academy in Dublin. He has done several stage productions and appeared in the Stephen Frears-directed feature Florence Foster Jenkins. He also recurs on the upcoming ITV drama The Halcyon. Cuffe is repped by Gersh, Untitled Entertainment and the Artists Partnership.
“Krypton” will be produced by Warner Horizon Television. The pilot is written by David Goyer (Man of Steel) with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Goyer will executive produce through his company Phantom Four with Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), who will serve as showrunner. Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) will direct the pilot.
