The newest 'Star Trek' captain: Jason Isaacs
Lucius Malfoy is about to boldly go where no one has gone before.
British actor Jason Isaacs, perhaps best known in America for playing Draco’s dad in the Harry Potter franchise, has signed on to play Starfleet’s newest captain in CBS All Access’ upcoming Star Trek Discovery.
All we know so far about Isaacs’ character is his name: Captain Lorca. Oh, and we know what his chair will look like.
The cast also includes The Walking Dead’s Sonequa Martin-Green as Lorca’s second in command and 30 Rock’s Maulik Pancholy as a Starfleet medical officer. Other roles include Terry Serpico (Army Wives) as a high-ranking Starfleet admiral, Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as another captain and Mary Wiseman (Baskets) as a cadet who will be assigned to Lorca’s ship, the USS Discovery, after graduation.
