The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that several cast members have been added to FX’s upcoming X-Men pilot Legion. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), and Jean Smart (Fargo) are joining female lead Rachel Keller (Fargo) in the upcoming television drama helmed by Noah Hawley. Hawley seems to pulling talent from the popular anthology series Fargo, as both Keller and Smart have starred in the FX drama. It seems like a fitting move by Hawley, as he was responsible for adapting the series to television.
Legion will begin filming its pilot in March, so expect more casting news in the up-coming weeks. The series will have a home at FX, and will be the network’s first show adapted from comic books.
