Jason Isaacs cast as Starship captain in CBS All Access show ‘Star Trek: Discovery’
As the Vulcans would say, “Live long and prosper, Captain Lorca.”
Jason Isaacs, best known for his roles in “Awake,” “Dig,” “The OA,” “The Patriot” and as Lucius Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” series, has been cast to play Captain Lorca, head of the Starship Discovery on CBS All Access’ “Star Trek: Discovery,” Deadline reports.
It’s slated to be released in late summer or early fall.
Isaacs will join the elite ranks of those who’ve captained Starships in the related TV universe. The names include William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks and Kate Mulgrew.
The program was originally set to launch in January 2017, but experienced repeated delays, so much so that “The Good Wife” spinoff, “The Good Fight,” became CBS All Access’ first program (with warm reviews to boot).
