Amazon series 'The Hunt' adds five recurring roles to its cast led by Al Pacino
'The Hunt' cast now has more company. According to reports, Becky Ann Baker ('Men in Black'), Julissa Bermudez ('106 & Park'), Miles G. Jackson ('The Last OG'), Josh Mostel ('Big Daddy'), and Junno Davies ('Spotless') have joined the upcoming Amazon Prime Video original series in key recurring roles. 'The Hunt' is a vengeance-driven Nazi-hunting series starring Al Pacino, Logan Lerman and Jerrika Hinton.
'The Hunt' is executive produced by Oscar-winning 'Get Out' writer-director Jordan Peele. The series follows a diverse band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City. The group, which is known as The Hunters, have discovered that there are hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials living amidst them. These officials are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the US. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a dangerous quest to bring the Nazis to justice and to foil their genocidal plans. The series is an original idea but also draws inspiration from real historical events.
Bermudez is all set to play a nurse named Maria. Baker essays the role of Juanita Kreps, the Secretary of Commerce. Mostel plays Rabbi Stecker of New York City. Jackson plays the role of a disgraced journalist Danny Rohr and Davies will play Tobias, a bodyguard.
Logan Lerman, known for playing the lead role in the fantasy-adventure 'Percy Jackson' movies, 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and 'Indignation', is set to essay the role of Jonah Heidelbaum, who when his grandmother is murdered in their apartment by a mysterious intruder, sets out to find the culprit. He then finds himself swept up in the organization known as The Hunt, a group of justice-seeking individuals who are dedicated to rooting out the 'murderous' Nazis living in the US under assumed identities. Al Pacino plays the role of Meyer Offerman, a Nazi hunter who mentors Lerman's character.
The series also has Josh Radnor from 'How I Met Your Mother' fame play the role of Lonny Flash, a movie star who is secretly a member of Meyer's organization.
'The Hunt' is going to be a global exclusive for the streaming service, which means that it will premiere in more than 200 countries and territories through Amazon Prime Video. The release date for the series is yet to be announced.
