Netflix has announced more cast members for the upcoming sci-fi series “Another Life”: Tyler Hoechlin, Justin Chatwin, Samuel Anderson and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow – who will join previously announced Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair. Omar Madha (“Scorpion,” “24: Live Another Day,” “Person of Interest”) will direct the first two episodes.
The 10-episode series centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artefact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Hoechlin [top left] (“Supergirl,” “Can You Keep A Secret,” “Bigger,” “Everybody Wants Some”) plays ‘Ian Yerxa,’ the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship, who loses the post to Niko.
Chatwin [bottom left] (“Shameless,” “Orphan Black”) plays ‘Erik Wallace,’ part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge (Sackhoff).
Anderson [middle] (“Loaded,” “Dr. Who,” “Trollied”) plays ‘William,” a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal.
Ludlow [right] (“The Walking Dead,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”) plays ‘Cas Isakovic,’ Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.
