The DC Universe's upcoming Swamp Thing series has finally found its leads in Andy Bean (Power), who will play biologist Alec Holland, and Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), who will play the titular monster.

The DC Universe has confirmed their upcoming Swamp Thing series has added Andy Bean (Power; It: Chapter Two) and Derek Mears (Friday the 13th; The Flash; Sleepy Hollow) in series regular roles. Bean will play the biologist-turned-monster Alec Holland while Mears will portray the titular beast. 

Holland's official description reads, "Passionate biologist Alec Holland is caught in the crosshairs of a small town nightmare when he discovers a bizarre local illness may be connected to his work in the swamp. Holland's discovery leads him into conflict with dark forces, from which he emerges as the elemental hero known as Swamp Thing." Meanwhile, Swamp Thing's official description reads, "Emerging from the swamp with a monstrous physique and strange new powers over plant life, the man who was once Alec Holland struggles to hold onto his humanity. When dark forces converge on the town of Marais, Swamp Thing must embrace what he has become in order to defend the town as well as the natural world at large."

The pair join a cast that will also feature Crystal Reed (Gotham) as Abby Arcane, Maria Sten (Straight Outta Compton) as Liz Tremayne, Jennifer Beals (The Last Tycoon) as Sheriff Lucilia Cable, Jeryl Prescott (The Walking Dead) as Madame Xanadu, Academy Award-nominee Virginia Madsen (Elementary) as Maria Sunderland, and Will Patton (Halloween) as the villainous Avery Sunderland.
