Will Poulter joins cast of the Lord of the Rings series – report

Actor Will Poulter has reportedly signed on to appear in the forthcoming TV series based on the Lord Of The Rings franchise.
The Revenant star has scored one of the lead roles in the show, according to Variety editors, who also announced in July (19) Australian actress Markella Kavenagh was in talks for another role.
Little is known about the 26 year old Brit’s character, nor the series itself, which will air on streaming service Amazon, but previous reports have revealed the small screen story will be a prequel of sorts to the first book in the famed J.R.R. Tolkien series, The Fellowship of the Ring.
Poulter recently starred in films Midsommar and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
