Black Mirror expands its lineup with Under the Banner of Heaven’s Rory Culkin, a genre-experienced cast member.
black mirrorthe former British darling that quickly found itself under Netflix’s burgeoning production banner remains the true successor to classic anthology series The Twilight Zone (Which is a loss for Jordan Peele, whose rebooted series might have the name but not half the oomph.) Deadline is reporting that Rory Culkin will be one of the series’ upcoming stars — last season it was all by Anthony Mackey to see Miley Cyrus – and it’s a great choice.
Currently in season six of the Charlie Brooker production, one of a handful of projects under its new shingle Broke & Bones, fans have a lot to look forward to based on the casting announcements – and one of the genre-savvy members of the Culkin Clans isn’t bad.
black mirror has long held up a, well, mirror to society’s obsession with current technology and social media trends, featuring everything from cyber stalking running amok to the obsessive use of technological implants to a black-and-white 1950s B-movie style horror story about these Boston Dynamics robotic dogs used to hunt down humans in the future (that recent news has shown these dogs to be armed really confirms how frighteningly prescient they are black mirror is and remains). It has also already been an acting showcase for a slew of budding stars and megastars. Haley Atwell was on the show before Peggy Carter cemented her in the MCU and Jon Hamm was at the peak of his mad Men Success.
It’s also a brilliant casting choice. In the last season alone, Anthony Mackey flipped his image just before he became the new guy Captain America exploring his sexuality while Miley Cyrus is known to most of her fans as Hannah MontanaHe, the music star with a double life, got to play a version of a mega music star with a terrible family life. Casting Rory Culkin (McCaulay and Kieran’s younger brother, currently on HBO successor) is a smart move considering this is the culkin that walked in sign and was in one recently Scream sequel—when it comes to genre-ready chops, he has them in abundance.
Other recent casting announcements include Aaron Paul (who recently landed his role as breaking Bad‘s Jesse Pinkman in recent episodes of Better call Saul) and Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, the Joker), so Culkin will have quite a few cohorts at his side. Other cast members announced include Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Danny Ramirez, Clara Rugaard, Auden Thornton and Anjana Vasan. It was reported that the 6th season was longer than the 5th, which featured only three episodes. There is no release date for yet black mirror season 6
