Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 07.25.08] Tuvalu news scifi

Okay so I know we keep saying that we don't give a rat's ass about casting announcements but I just could resist sharing this crossover casting news. More cast info about AMC's 6 episode remake of The Prisoner has been released and it looks like Jericho's own Lennie James will be playing Number 147. You Jericho fans out there (and I know you're out there, I can hear you breathing) may remember James as the secretive special forces man "Robert Hawkins," from the recently canceled post-apocalyptic TV show. His characters was one of the floundering show's saving graces. Other reported cast members include Hayley Atwell (Cassandra's Dream) as Number 41-5, Jamie Campbell-Bower (RocknRolla)as Number 11-12, and Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre) as Number 313. Did anyone else notice that some of he actors are playing two characters? Curiouser and curiouser...

Lennie James is a fantastic actor. Without Jericho, millions of us may not have know about him. I'm looking forward to watching "The Prisoner" now!
