‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’: starring Timothy Omundson, Jay Duplass

Percy Jackson and the Olympians has added two more to its star-studded cast.

Jay Duplass (Industry, Transparent) is set to play Hades, god of the underworld, in the upcoming Disney+ series, our sister site diversity reports. Also, Timothy Omundson (psych) takes on the role of Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths and fire.

Hades is described as a god who feels like “an outcast from his family” and “a misunderstood genius” who harbors a grudge for past wrongs. Meanwhile, “Hephaestus was disabled when he was thrown off Mount Olympus as a baby.” He still has legendary strength, and his “capacity for kindness and mercy sets him apart from his brothers and sisters in the dog-eat-dog world of the gods”.

In the 2010 movie Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning ThiefSteve Coogan portrayed Hades and Conrad Coates played Hephaestus.

Adapted from Rick Riordan’s bestselling book series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians promises to tell the fantastic story of Percy Jackson (played by The Adam Projects Walker Scobell), a 12-year-old modern-day demigod who is just coming to terms with his divine powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. With the help of his friends Grover and Annabeth (played by Aryan Simhadri and Leah Sava Jeffries), Percy must embark on an adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.

The cast also includes Virginia Kull as Percy’s mother, Sally Jackson; Glynn Turman as the centaur Chiron, who trains the heroes; Megan Mullally as Percy’s math teacher, Mrs. Dodds, aka Fury Alecto, who was sent by Hades; Jason Mantzoukas as camp counselor Mr. D (the Greek god Dionysus); Timm Sharp as Percy’s stepfather, Gabe Ugliano; Charlie Bushnell as Hermes’ son Luke and Dior Goodjohn as Ares’ daughter Clarisse.

Additionally, Lin-Manuel Miranda will play the messenger god Hermes, WWE Hall of Famer Adam Copeland (aka Edge) will return as Ares, and The Lightning Alum Jessica Parker Kennedy will guest star as Medusa.
