A new drama project has gathered an impressive talent lineup both in front of and behind the cameras. FX Networks announced that its pilot “Legion” has added cast members Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”) and Jean Smart (“Fargo”).
The pilot is written by “Fargo’s” Noah Hawley, who will serve as executive producer along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron.
Rachel Keller of “Fargo” was previously announced as a cast member for the pilot, which begins production next month. The project is a co-production of Marvel Television and FX Productions.
