Carol Kane (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Gotham), Saul Rubinek (The Last Tycoon, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Warehouse 13), Tiffany Boone (The Chi, The Following), Louis Ozawa Changchien (Kidding, Bosch, The Man in the High Castle), Greg Austin (BBC's Class, Mr Selfridge) and Dylan Baker (I'm Dying Up Here, Homeland, Blindspot) have joined the cast of Amazon's The Hunt, a Nazi hunter series from Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us). Lena Olin was also confirmed in this group but was previously confirmed by Deadline and posted on the site.

Amazon confirmed this today at the TCA's via Deadline. In addition to these castings, which I did share on the Jerrika Hinton and Lena Olin post, Amazon confirmed that Al Pacino, Logan Lerman, and Jerrika Hinton closed their deals to star in the Amazon drama.

Inspired by real-life events, the series based on an original idea takes place in 1977 and revolves around a group of Nazi hunters living in New York City.

The Hunters, as they're known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.

Per Collider, as Deadline doesn't mention any character details:

Dylan Baker will play Biff Simpson, a Waspy politician and family man hiding a dark secret.

Greg Austin will play Travis Leich, a young man eager to serve the murderous Nazi cause.

Saul Rubinek and Carol Kane will play a Hasidic couple named Murray and Mindy Markowitz.

Tiffany Boone will play Roxy Jones, a beautiful, street smart member of Meyer's top secret organization per Deadline.

Additionally, ET Online shared some details on Pacino and Hinton's characters.

Al Pacino will play Meyer Offerman, a powerful and mysterious man, leader of a vigilante group known as The Hunters. He befriends Jonah Heidelbaum (Lerman) after his grandmother's murder and becomes his guide through the world of The Hunt.

Jerrika Hinton will play Millie Malone, a "brilliant FBI agent (who also happens to be one of the first black, female agents in the bureau). As she investigates a series of suspicious murders, she is drawn closer to the truth about The Hunters.

The 10-episode drama is being written by David Weil (Moonfall) and produced by Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) will direct the pilot. Production beings later this month in New York City.
