WBTV just announced that actress Jennifer Beals will be joining the cast of DC Universe’s upcoming series, Swamp Thing, as Sheriff Lucilia Cable, an original character created just for the show.
Tough as nails and pragmatic, Sheriff Lucilia Cable’s fierce devotion to her son, Matt, is rivaled only by her sworn duty to serve and protect the town of Marais. As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, Lucilia must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.
Considering some of what’s taken place in the pages of Swamp Thing’s comic series over the years, one can only guess what those “strange forces” may be. Beals joins the previously announced Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne in what’s shaping up to be a very female friendly cast for the James Wan produced series, which will bring Alec Holland to live action for the first time in fifteen years.
Swamp Thing will be heading to the DC Universe in 2019.
