CBS announced today that the Harry Potter actor has signed on to play Captain Lorca, Captain of the Starship Discover in the upcoming TV series Star Trek: Discovery. Additionally, Baskets actress Mary Wiseman has joined the ensemble as a cadet in her final year of study.

Further details are not yet known, but Isaacs is a major casting coup for the show and, presumably, a big piece of the puzzle.

But he's no doubt an integral player, and Isaacs is a fantastic choice.

He was in Black Hawk Down as well. He plays a certain type of unlikable character in many films, it seems.

Now this could get me to watch it.

Though it would have to be on Netflix since I killed off my cable.

You will have to move to Europe to see it on Netflix. In the USA it will be in the graveyard known as CBS all access (an internet offshoot). I'm not paying $5 USD a month for it.
