Actor Reg. E. Cathey,
who can be currently seen in the Netflix hit series House of Cards, has joined
the cast of 20th Century Fox’s
reboot of The Fantastic Four, which is currently shooting in Louisiana, and is slated for a June 2015 release.
With a long list of credits in both film and television, since the mid-80s, and perhaps best known an Norman Wilson from HBO’s The
Wire, Cathey will play the role of Dr.
Storm, the father of Johnny Storm, played by Michael B. Jordan and Sue Storm, being played by Kate Mara.
Coincidentally, Jordan started his career on The Wire, and Mara
was a regular on the first season of House of Cards.
