Jordan Peele’s upcoming Amazon series, The Hunt, continues to add to its expansive cast.
An official description of the series reads: “The Hunt follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.”
Among the latest crop of additions are Henry Hunter Hall and Ebony Obsidian.
Al Pacino, Logan Lerman and Jerrika Hinton lead the series. The ensemble cast also includes Tiffany Boone, Carol Kane, Kate Mulvany, Saul Rubinek, Boone, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Lena Olin, Greg Austin, Josh Radnor, and Dylan Baker.
Obsidian will play Lerman’s love interest and Hall will play one of his friends.
Hall, the son of actor Vondie Curtis-Hall and filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, last appeared in the Sundance hit, Selah and the Spades (still awaiting distribution) and will also appear in the Cynthia Erivo-led Harriet biopic, directed by his mother, which also co-stars his father. Obsidian, starred in the hit webseries, Tough Love, and was a scene stealer in Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk last winter.
The Hunt series is from Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment. It is created by David Weil (Moonfall), who writes and executive produces.
