Juliette Lewis is the latest addition to the cast of Jon M. Chu’s Jem and the Holograms. Deadline reports that the Academy Award nominee will play a mystery role opposite the previously-announced Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja, Aurora Perrineau as Shana and Ryan Guzman as Rio.
Created by Christy Marx, the original “Jem and the Holograms” series was a joint collaboration from Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. It began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the titular Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends.
Lewis recently starred in August: Osage County and can be seen coming up in Hellion opposite Aaron Paul.
