John Magaro Cast in Netflix Series ‘The Umbrella Academy’

Best known for his role in The Big Short, actor John Magaro has been cast in Netflix’s upcoming live-action series The Umbrella Academy.

The story follows an estranged family superheroes known as The Umbrella Academy: Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castaneda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Ellen Page), Klaus (Robert Sheehan) and Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) all work together to solve their father’s strange death. This proves to be difficult considering their differing personalities.

Magaro will play Leonard Peabody, an average Joe who begins to take music lessons from Vanya (Page) as they begin to fall in love. This love story will play a central factor in The Umbrella Academy.

The series is written by Jeremy Slater, based on the graphic novels created by Gerard Way — and will serve as showrunner. Steve Blackman will also serve as showrunner.
