Jason Momoa to play a ‘fearless warrior’ in Apple’s sci-fi series See
From Khal Drogo to Aquaman to… ah, yes, Baba Voss.
Jason Momoa has scored his next small-screen project, landing the lead role in Apple’s forthcoming sci-fi drama series See.
Variety confirms that Momoa is set to portray the “fearless warrior, leader, and guardian” Baba Voss.
No further details on his character were given at the time of the announcement, but if anyone can thrive in a role that presumably involves guiding a pack of underlings, battling enemies whose weapons could probably slice through human flesh in half a second flat, and stirring up motivation to carry on even when circumstances look bleaker than the chances Marvel will ever give Hawkeye his own movie, it’s Jason Momoa.
Described as an “epic, world-building drama” that takes place in a future in which humankind has lost its sense of sight, See has The Hunger Games: Catching Fire filmmaker Francis Lawrence attached as director and executive producer. Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight will also executive produce the 10-episode series, which chronicles how society reacts to a set of twins being born with the ability to see.
See marks yet another television venture for Momoa, who currently stars as Declan Harp in Netflix’s Frontier. Fans can next catch Momoa diving beneath the surface of the sea as Arthur Curry in director James Wan’s Aquaman, due out on December 21.
