British newcomer Cameron Cuffe (“Florence Foster Jenkins,” “The Halcyon”) has scored the starring role of Seg-El, father of Jor-El and grandfather of Superman himself Kal-El, in Syfy’s upcoming pilot “Krypton”.
In the series, Seg-El is the scion of the once prosperous El family and is blessed with an intuitive brilliance for all things technical. He is now living in Krypton’s lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank.
David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Da Vinci’s Demons”) is behind the series and will executive produce with Damian Kindler. He and Ian Goldberg also co-wrote the pilot which Colm McCarthy is directing.
