Zane starred in Titanic with Legends of Tomorrow cast member Victor Garber, who plays Martin Stein (aka Firestorm) on the time-travel superhero series. The cast also includes Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Nick Zano, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers.
In season three of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Zane will play the famous circus impresario PT Barnum. The new season is set to premiere on The CW this fall.
From EP Phil Klemperer:
Obviously, we couldn’t resist putting Victor Garber and Billy Zane back on screen for the first time since the TITANIC.
But I’ve wanted to bring Billy onto LEGENDS every since I saw him in a friend’s comedy pilot. I’m not sure that people know how funny Billy is, although we cast him as P.T. Barnum because we knew that he would be able to find the soul beneath the larger-than-life showman. Truth is, Barnum never said ‘there’s a sucker born every minute.’ He was less a conman, more the father of modern advertising. A guy who made things ‘go viral’ before that was a thing. Sure, in one sense, he’s the villain of our story, but in another, he’s just a guy who wants to put on a good show. Anyone who works in TV can relate to that, right?! Anyway, Billy seemed like the perfect guy to get that duality.”
