EPIX and Warner Horizon Scripted Television have announced that Actor Ryan Fletcher joined the cast to play Dave Boy, in Pennyworth’s first season. Fletcher has been cast as series regulars.
Dave Boy, a haggard Highland Scotsman who is slowly drinking himself to death since leaving the army, is a close ally of Alfred and Bazza and also the most unpredictable of the trio.
Fletcher’s credits include “Shetland” and “Outlander.”
Production on the series will begin Monday, October 22, 2018, at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, in the UK.
The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who’s not yet Bruce’s father, in 1960s London.
“Pennyworth” is from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“Gotham,” “The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and executive producer/director Danny Cannon (“Gotham,” “CSI” series)
