Michael Beach (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Patriots Day”) has joined the cast of James Wan’s “Aquaman” for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics.
Beach has been cast as Jesse Kane, part of a group of high-seas hijackers who has a fateful interaction with Aquaman (Jason Momoa). The role is said to be another villain, but only a minor one overall with Patrick Wilson and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II taking on the roles of the main antagonists Ocean Master and Black Manta respectively.
Beach and Momoa previously worked together on “Stargate: Atlantis,” while Beach and Wan worked on “Insidious: Chapter 2”. Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Ludi Lin, Dolph Lundgren and Temuera Morrison also star in the film with Lundgren posting a short video from stunt rehearsals from the film’s set recently.
