SWAMP THING Reportedly Adds THE STRAIN Actor Kevin Durand As The Villainous Floronic Man

We wondered if one of Swamp Thing's more established foes would show up in the DC Universe series, and a new report indicates that Kevin Durand (The Strain, Lost) is in negotiations to play Jason Woodrue.

We found out earlier this week that Will Patton would be playing the main villain in DC Universe's live-action Swamp Thing series, but it looks like his character, Avery Sunderland, is going to have some formidable backup.

According to That Hashtag Show, Kevin Durand (Lost, The Strain, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is in talks to play Jason Woodrue, aka The Floronic Man.

Originally introduced as a minor Flash villain, Woodrue returned in the pages of Swamp Thing when Sunderland arranged from his release from Prison, and he has since gone on to become one of The Earth Elemental's better-known enemies.

Swamp Thing is being developed as a one-hour show, and has Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (It) on board to write the pilot. They'll also executive produce alongside Michael Clear and James Wan. Len Wiseman will helm the first episode.
