Swamp Thing - Kevin Durand Joins Cast as Jason Woodrue in DC Universe Series



Kevin Durand (The Strain, Lost) has joined the cast of DC Universe's upcoming Swamp Thing series per Deadline. Durand will take on the role of Jason Woodrue, a brilliant but abrasive scientist who eventually becomes Floronic Man, a transmogrified super-villain.

Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

The character is described as "prickly genius Jason Woodrue is a biogeneticist without equal and he knows it. Brought in to study the unique properties of a small-town Louisiana swamp, Woodrue becomes fixated on unlocking the potential contained within — leading to tragic and monstrous consequences."

The drama based on DC characters hails from James Wan in association with Warner Bros. Television. The live-action drama will debut on the streaming service in 2019. Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman will pen the script with Wan, Verheiden, Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Wiseman executive producing the live-action series. Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow) is set to direct.

Durand joins previously announced cast members Crystal Reed, Andy Bean, Henderson Wade, Maria Sten, Jennifer Beals, Jeryl Prescott, Derek Mears, Virginia Madsen and Will Patton in the live-action series set to debut in 2019.
