Marvel's The Inhumans has cast Anson Mount, star of AMC's Hell on Wheels, as Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans.
Mount is one of two leads cast in the new ABC series. The other is Game of Thrones alum Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Black Bolt's brother.
“Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently,” said Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television and executive producer on Marvel's The Inhumans. “His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”
“Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I’m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life,” added showrunner and executive producer, Scott Buck.
We are STOKED on his casting choice. This show is shaping up to be something special.
