Jeremie Harris Joins Cast Of FX's LEGION

Actor Jeremie Harris will play a character named Ptonomy in FX's Legion. That's totally a mutant code name, right? Could he be a member of the X-Men or a student at the Xavier Institute?

Actor Jeremie Harris (The Get Down) has joined FX's "Legion,"  as the cable network continues to fill out the cast.   It appears that Harris will be playing an original mutant character not previously seen in Marvel Comics.  He will play Ptonomy, "an outsider by nature, stand-offish and sardonic who is a former child prodigy who feels trapped in the past."  

Legion stars Dan Stevens (The Guest) as David Haller and Rachel Keller (Fargo) as 'the girl of his dreams'.  While Keller's character has yet to be officially named, most comic book fans have guessed that she could be Rogue as her character is described as having powers centered around touch. However, 'girl of his dreams' could be a clue that Keller is actually playing Blindfold, a mutant student at the Xavier Institute and powerful telepath.  In Si Spurrier's recent X-Men: Legacy run, Blindfold and Legion were a romantic item, with Blindfold often appearing in Legion's dreams.  

Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) plays Lenny, a character that remains an eternal optimist depsite  alife filled with drug and alchohol abuse. Jean Smart (Fargo) plays Melanie, David's therapist.  

The pilot is expected to begin filming in March.

 

Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real."
