Percy Jackson and the Olympians has added three more to its ranks.

The upcoming Disney+ series has cast WWE Hall of Famer Adam Copeland (aka Edge) in a recurring role Ares, the god of war, our sister site diversity reports. Ares is described as “wickedly handsome and arrogant, though he’s not always the sharpest tool in the shed.”

In the meantime, The Lightning Alum Jessica Parker Kennedy will guest star as Medusa, who has been “betrayed by the gods” and leads a “bitter” life of seclusion until travelers stumble across her habitat. The famous creature is “welcoming to some and a menace to others.”
