The filming date for Marvel’s The Inhumans was revealed yesterday, but that’s the only news we’d had since it was announced – well, besides the fact that Iron Fist‘s Scott Buck will run the show. Thankfully, we’ve been treated to some fresh and exciting news today. A casting call from ABC has been released, and the principle characters relate heavily to the main set of Inhumans.
Let’s get into it:
[BRODERICK]Male. 30-40. Caucasian. Can say volumes with just a look. Strong, thoughtful and private, he’s unaccustomed to being questioned or feeling a need to answer to anyone, to an extent that can verge on arrogance. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[MARJORIE]Female. 30-40. Caucasian. An elegant and intelligent advisor to her husband, she struggles to find her place outside of their relationship, as others tend to view her as just a pretty face. Strong and resourceful, she’s not afraid to break the rules when the situation demands it. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[MARTY]Male. 30-40. Caucasian. Broderick’s younger brother; he is intelligent, charming and articulate. He comes across as a man of the people but secretly covets power. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[KEVIN]Male. 30-40. Open. Slight of build, his mind is his greatest asset. Always prepared with a plan, his outlook on life is the glass is always half-empty and often cracked and dirty as well. Though his outlook can be grim he has a droll, dry sense of humor. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[GRADY]Male. 25-35. Open. Impetuous and brash, he has serious impulse control issues which frequently get him into trouble whether its women, booze or fighting. He loves life and lives in the moment for better or worse. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[CHRISTINE]Female. 18-25 to play 18. Caucasian. Soulful but still learning the ways of the world, she has the arrogance of youth. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family. SERIES REGULAR, AEP.
[TIMOTHY]Male. 25-35. Open. SFXMU required. Supremely athletic. The ultimate picture of cool. He’s calm under pressure and willing to do anything to get the job done.
Notice how all of the first initial in the fake names match the Inhumans names? It’s no coincidence that this is true, the descriptions are pretty accurate to each character too! We’re hoping to see additional characters such as Lockjaw, Quake from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and even a hint of Ms. Marvel in the eight-episode season.
The first episode of Marvel’s The Inhumans premieres on ABC on September 26, and it begins filming in March.
