‘Swamp Thing’ Casts Its Lead Role

Numerous roles have already been filled for DC’s new show Swamp Thing, but it’s lead role of Alec Holland and Swamp Thing remained vacant. Now we know who will finally become the mossy creature.

Andy Bean will be playing the role of Alec Holland while Derek Mears will become Swamp Thing. Andy Bean has been in multiple TV series and films including Power and the upcoming IT: Chapter Two. Mears has been seen on season four of The Flash where he played Sylbert Rundine/Dwarfstar. He also has an upcoming role in Alita: Battle Angel.

Mears was rumored before the official announcement so it’s nice to see it come to fruition. What do you think about the casting? Let us know in the comments!

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing. Currently I am earning my MFA at National University. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs, and spend what free time I have doing whatever (mostly Pokémon GO). Have a happy!
