The Fallout TV series continues to grow its cast adding Twin Peaks’ Kyle MacLachlan as well as Xelia Mendes-Jones and Aaron Moten to the cast.
Variety reports that MacLachlan, Mendes-Jones, and Moten will join the previously announced Ella Purnell and Walton Goggins, who is reportedly playing the lead role as a character “based on the ghouls.”
No word yet on any of the roles for the new cast members joining the production.
MacLachlan is best known for his role as special agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks. He has starred in several other David Lynch films, but has also been a mainstay on TV appearing in shows like How I Met Your Mother and playing the Mayor of Portland in Portlandia.
The Fallout TV series is set to begin production later this year with Westworld’s Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy set to serve as executive producers. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner are also executive producers and co-showrunners. Bethesda director Todd Howard is also an executive producer.
In addition to producing, Jonathan Nolan will direct the series premiere for Amazon having previously directed several episodes of Westworld and Person of Interest.
The Best Fallout Stories For the Amazon Show
Fallout is just one of several video game adaptations for TV currently in the works. While Fallout is set for Amazon, HBO is developing a Last of Us TV series, and a Horizon series is heading to Netflix.
Meanwhile, Bethesda is busy working on its next game Starfield while also in the early stages of the next Elder Scrolls game. This means a new Fallout game might be further out and will likely not be done before the TV series hits Amazon.
