Marvel and Hulu’s Runaways has been getting a lot of press these past few weeks, and we’re completely here for it. Most recently, we got a look at the main cast of the show, and to most people’s surprise, the actors they chose resembled the characters from the comics. Shocking that something like that could happen, right? I know. Regardless of that, the kids of the show have been cast, and now we have a look at the cast of the youth’s villainous parents, also known as “The Pride.” The names that stuck out the most were James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), and Annie Wershing (24), but there’s a lot more. Check them all out below (via TVLine):
“…Kevin Weisman (Alias), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives) and Ever Carradine (Major Crimes). Rounding out the parentral ranks are Ryan Sands (The Wire), Angel Parker (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Brittany Ishibashi (Emily Owens M.D.), James Yaegashi (Broadway’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and Kip Pardue (Ray Donovan).”
A lot of those names may be a mystery to many fans, but it looks like Marvel really sought out plenty of talent for these roles. It’s not specific as to which actors are playing each kid’s parents, but we’re excited to see this cast come together in this new series. Are you guys excited for this casting news? Let us know in the comment section.
Marvel’s Runaways is still without a set release date, but it’ll be out sometime in 2018.
