Deadline reports that Luke Pasqualino and Lucien Laviscount are the latest names to be joining the cast of the new series for Sony’s streaming network Crackle, Snatch, based on the 2000 Guy Ritchie film of the same name.
Inspired on a real life heist in London, Snatch will focus on a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and become suddenly thrusted into the high-stakes world of organised crime where they must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend upon them.
The report states that Luke Pasqualino will be playing the lead role as Albert Hill, an aspirational young man who is smart, handsome, charming and a bit of a thinker as well as a doer. He strives to ensure that he doesn’t end up like his father, Vic. Loyalty, heart and passion are at his core. Meanwhile Lucien Laviscount will be playing the role of Billy ‘Fuckin’ Ayers, a handsome, aggressive and stubborn boxer. Pasqualino and Laviscount will be joining a cast that includes Rupert Grint (Charlie Cavendish), Dougray Scott (Vic Hill) and Ed Westwick (Sonny Castillo).
Snatch is scheduled to premiere on Crackle in 2017.
