Swamp Thing casts Jennifer Beals as Sheriff Cable

Casting for James Wan and Gary Dauberman's upcoming SWAMP THING series is in full swing, and so far the series has announced the casting of Crystal Reed and Maria Sten. Derek Mears is rumored to be playing the part of Swamp Thing himself, but that has not been confirmed as of yet.

And today we've learned via Variety that Jennifer Beals - perhaps best known to us genre fans for such films as THE PROPHECY II, THE GRUDGE 2, THE BOOK OF ELI, and THE BRIDE - has joined the cast of the upcoming DC Universe series. 

She will appear in the recurring guest star role of 

Sheriff Lucilia Cable, described as tough as nails and pragmatic, Cable’s fierce devotion to her son, Matt, is rivaled only by her sworn duty to serve and protect the town of Marais. As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, she must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.

Based on the DC Comics characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the one-hour drama series follows 

CDC researcher Abby Arcane (Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Len Wiseman serve as executive producers on the series. Rob Hackett is co-producer. Verheiden and Dauberman are writing the first episode with Wiseman set to direct.
