True Blood star Stephen Moyer is slated to play a lead role in Fox‘s planned TV spin-off of its X-Men franchise.

For his leading role on the HBO horror drama, Moyer was nominated for a series of Scream Awards over the course of the show’s run, winning one as well as a Saturn Award. In addition to True Blood, the actor had a role in the 2015 Will Smith drama Concussion and appeared as Captain Von Trapp in NBC‘s live TV production of The Sound of Music. He is also expected to appear in Fox’s upcoming limited drama series Shots Fired.

It is reported that Moyer has been cast as Reed, an attorney who tries to juggle his work commitment with those to his family. This suggests that he is to be one of the parents who discover that their children have mutant abilities.

“Developing a Marvel property has been a top priority for the network–and we are so pleased with how Matt Nix has led us into this thrilling universe,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said back in July when the show was announced. “There’s comic book adventure, emotional and complicated relationships, and a rich, existing mythology from which to draw. With the brilliant production crew behind this project, it has all the makings of a big, fun and exciting new series.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
