Swamp Thing: Kevin Durand Joins Cast For DC Universe Series

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Kevin Durand is the latest name to join the the cast of DC Universe’s upcoming live-action drama series Swamp Thing.


The Swamp Thing series follows what happens when CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland, only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous, and the potential love of her life may not be gone after all.


Kevin Durand (whose credits include LOST, The Strain and Bigger) will be playing the role of Jason Woodrue, who DC Comic fans will also know as supervillain the Floronic Man. Prickly genius Jason Woodrue is a biogeneticist without equal and he knows it. Brought in to study the unique properties of a small-town Louisiana swamp, Woodrue becomes fixated on unlocking the potential contained within — leading to tragic and monstrous consequences. The Hashtag Show exclusively reported back in the 8th November that Durand was in talks for the role (see video below).


Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman are attached to co-write the script and serve as showrunners and executive producers for the live-action drama if it gets a straight-to-series order. James Wan will be serving as executive producer alongside Michael Clear under Atomic Monster banner, with Rob Hackett serving as a co-executive producer. Recently it was reported that Len Wiseman will serve as an executive producer as well as direct the first episode.
