Simon McBurney is headed to Amazon. Deadline reports the Rev star has joined the streaming service’s upcoming TV show Carnival Row.
From Rene Echevarria and Paul McGuigan, the fantasy drama is set in a neo-Victorian city where “mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population.” The cast includes Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, David Gyasi, Indira Varma, Karla Crome, and Tamzin Merchant.
On Carnival Row, McBurney will be playing “Runyan Millworthy, an eccentric traveling showman who leads a troupe of strange creatures called kobolds back to the city where he began his once proud, now fading career.”
The series is set to debut on Amazon in 2019.
