343 Industries revealed on Thursday at San Diego Comic Con the rest of the cast for the upcoming live-action series Halo: Nightfall.
Mike Colter was previously cast as the lead character in the original series, but Christina Chong, Steve Waddington and Luke Neal round out the primary cast, according to Deadline, while newcomer Alexander Bhat, Christian Contreras, Jennie Gruner, Alexis Rodney, Eric Kofi Abrefa, Shaun Blaney and Sarah Armstrong will also appear.
Colter is set to play Agent Jameson Locke in the five-part miniseries, which will tell his origin story. Chong will play Talitha Macer, Waddington is Randall Aiken and Neal will be Michael Bradley Horrigan.
Paul Sheuring (Prison Break) wrote the series, which is being produced by Ridley Scott. Halo: Nightfall will come included as part of the previously announced Halo: Master Chief Collection due out in November.
The Halo miniseries will be one of the few projects to come out of Xbox Entertainment Studios, which Microsoft announced a week ago would be shuttered as part of layoffs and restructuring. About 200 of the total 18,000 planned cuts will be from the studio, which is also working on the documentary series Signal to Noise.
