The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Jeremie Harris (The Get Down) has signed on to appear in FX’s X-Men TV series Legion, where he will play Ptonomy, “an outsider by nature, stand-offish and sardonic, who is a former child prodigy who feels trapped in the past”.
Legion centres on David Haller, played by Dan Stevens (The Guest), “a man who may be more than human and who has struggled with mental illness since his teenage years. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he is confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.”
Legion has been developed by Fargo’s Noah Hawley, and will also feature Fargo stars Rachel Keller and Jean Smart, along with Aubrey Plaza (Dirty Grandpa).
