Deadline is reporting that Tyler Hoechlin, Justin Chatwin, Samuel Anderson and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow are the latest names to join the cast of Netflix sci-fi drama series Another Life.
Another Life focuses on astronaut Niko Breckinridge, who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niki and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Tyler Hoechlin (whose credits include Supergirl and Teen Wolf) will be playing the role of Ian Yerxa, the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship, who loses the post to Niko. Justin Chatwin (whose credits include We Don’t Belong Here and American Gothic) will be playing the role of Erik Wallace, who is part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge. Samuel Anderson (whose credits include Loaded and Witless) will be playing the role of William, a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal. Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (whose credits include The Walking Dead and Table 19) will be playing the role of Cas Isakovic, Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.
The series is created by Aaron Martin, who will serve as showrunner. Halfire Entertainment will produce the series, with Noreen Halpern serving as executive producer under their banner.
