The Man Who Fell To Earth - Clarke Peters Joins Cast

Press Release
Clarke Peters, who recently starred in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, is joining Showtime drama The Man Who Fell To Earth.

Peters, who is best known for starring as Lester Freamon in The Wire, joins the cast as a series regular alongside stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Naomie Harris and Jimmi Simpson.

The show, which recently moved from Paramount+ to Showtime, will start production in London later this spring for a 2022 debut.

Based on the Walter Tevis novel and the iconic 1976 film that starred David Bowie, The Man Who Fell to Earth will follow a new alien character (Ejiofor) who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future.

Peters will play Josiah Falls, patriarch of the Falls family, father of Justin Falls (Harris) and a gifted scientist and engineer whose surprising relationship with Ejiofor’s alien brings about the next step in human evolution.
