Anthony Head Joins Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters


Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the sequel to the 2010 book series adaptation Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, has added former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Anthony Head to its cast. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Head will play the Chiron, portrayed in the original by Pierce Brosnan.

The sequel finds Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), the son of Poseidon, continuing his epic journey to fulfill his destiny, as he teams with his demigod friends (played by Alexandra Daddario and Douglas Smith) to retrieve the Golden Fleece, which has the power to save their home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.

Head, who appeared on the big screen in last year’s The Iron Lady, also joins Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle and fellow Joss Whedon television series alumn Nathan Fillion in the Thor Freudenthal film, set for release on March 27, 2013.
