ComingSoon is now reporting that The Halcyon actor Cameron Cuffe has been cast on SyFy’s prequel series, Krypton, as Seg-El – grandfather of Kryptonian hero, Superman.
Seg was previously described by TVLine as follows:
SEG-EL | Envisioned here as athletic, quietly confident and in his 20s, comic fans are familiar with an older (and a bit grumpier) Seg from his appearance in the classic Starman No. 51, written by James Robinson with story by Robinson and David S. Goyer, who is executive producer/writer of Krypton. But Seg’s a good guy at any age; in the comics, he and son Jor-El (Kal-El/Superman’s father) helped Starman get away while other Kryptonians wanted to detain – and dissect – the Earthling.
Cuffe joins actor Georgina Campbell (previously cast as Lyta Zod); a character whom Cuffe’s Seg-El pursues a secret and forbidden relationship with.
