Karl Urban To Star In Human
Human, the new show pilot from former Fringe showrunner JH Wyman and Bad Robot, has found its lead actor – Karl Urban (Dredd, Star Trek, The Chronicles Of Riddick, The Lord Of The Rings… oh you know who he is).
According to TVLine, Urban will play John Kennex, a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally after a tragic mission left him critically injured. He is paired with Dorian (Common Law‘s Michael Ealy), an android detective who, ironically, has a better grasp of humanity than he does.
Also cast are Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Lili Taylor (Six Feet Under), Michael Irby (The Unit) and Mackenzie Crook (Pirates Of The Caribbean).
As much as we’re excited about this show, we’re just hoping they change the name. It’s a bit… meh.
