The Flanagan verse added a certain Jedi to its ranks: Star Wars veterinarian Mark Hamill joined Mike Flanagan’s upcoming Netflix series The Fall of the Usher . Family, the streamer confirmed on Thursday.
Originally ordered at Netflix in October, The Fall of the Usher . Family described as “an epic tale of greed, horror and tragedy” will be considered a “modern remix” of several works by Edgar Allan Poe. (The Fall of the Usher . Family itself a short story by Poe first published in the 1800s.)
Not much is known about Hamill’s role, other than that his character is “surprisingly at home in the dark.” But he will join the limited series by four newly announced actors: Carla Gugino, a veteran of Flanagan’s Netflix projects, in an undisclosed role; Oscar nominations Frank Langella as Roderick Usher, patriarch of the Usher dynasty; Mary McDonnell (Serious crimes) as Madeline Usher, Roderick’s twin sister and hidden hand of the Usher dynasty; and Carl Lumbly (Aliases) as Poe C. Auguste Dupin’s recurring detective.
The Fall of the Usher . Family will last eight episodes, with Flanagan and frequent collaborator Michael Fimognari, each directing four seasons. Flanagan will also write the script. The limited series will mark Flanagan and producing partner Trevor Macy’s fifth project at Netflix, following The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass and coming soon Midnight Club, an adaptation of the youth novel by Christopher Pike.
