Jason Isaacs, the actor best known for playing the wicked Lucious Malfoy in the Harry Potter series of films, is joining another iconic franchise — but as a good guy this time.
Isaacs will be playing Captain Lorca in CBS All Access' upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery, TVGuide.com has learned. He'll topline the now-complete cast, which also includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, Doug Jones and James Frain.
Isaacs announced the news in a quickly-deleted tweet that showed the captain's chair of the Starship Discovery with the caption "looks comfy."
Recent Juilliard graduate Mary Wiseman will also be joining the cast as Tilly, a Starfleet Academy cadet assigned to the Discovery for her final year of study
Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in late summer or early fall.
