Amazon’s The Expanse adds Burn Gorman for season 4
The Amazon sci-fi series The Expanse welcomed a new cast member for the show’s fourth season. The official Expanse Twitter account posted a short clip of actor Burn Gorman (Game of Thrones) as Adolphus Murtry.
Burman played the malicious Karl Tanner on Game of Thrones and has also appeared in The Man in the High Castle, Pacific Rim, and The Dark Knight Rises. His character on The Expanse is chief of security for Royal Charter Energy, and known for being both cunning and ruthless. And possibly a little bit psychotic.
The Expanse is based on the popular science fiction novels by James S. A. Corey and was co-created and written by Academy Award nominees Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men). The cast of The Expanse includes three-time Golden Globe nominee Thomas Jane (Deep Blue Sea), Oscar-nominee Shohreh Asgdashloo (Star Trek: Beyond) and Steven Strait (The Covenant).
The series unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy. It is based on the New York Times bestselling book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under pen name James S. A. Corey) and stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham and Frankie Adams. Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST) and David Strathairn (Alphas) also join the Season 3 cast in recurring roles.
Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) serve as executive producers alongside showrunner Naren Shankar (Almost Human, Grimm).
