Casting for the second season of Jordan Peele’s rendition of the famed anthology series The Twilight Zone has been rounded out. Some heavy hitters and Emmy winners are joining the CBS All Access show.
The new additions include If Beale Street Could Talk actor Colman Domingo, Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor Billy Porter and Tony Award-nominated actor Daniel Sunjata.
Domingo will star alongside Tony Hale and Morena Baccarin in the episode “Downtime,” which will be written by Jordan Peele. Sunjata and Porter will star in the episode titled “The Who Of You,” written by Win Rosenfeld.
Last year, Porter made history when he became the first openly gay Black man to be nominated and win in a lead acting category at the Primetime Emmys for his portrayal of Pray Tell on the FX drama Pose. Porter took home the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series.
Prominent actors featured on The Twilight Zone’s first season include Sanaa Lathan, Damson Idris, Jessica Williams, DeWanda Wise and Tracy Morgan.
The first season of Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone and the original series are available to stream on CBS All Access.
