House Of Cards’ Reg E. Cathey Joins The FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot As Dr. Storm


fantastic fourFox‘s Fantastic Four reboot began filming the other day, but a new addition to the cast has just been announced. There was a lot of debate early on when the cast was announced about how Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Sue Storm (Kate Mara) would be related in the Josh Trank directed reboot, with many speculating that Jordan would be the adopted member of the Storm family. Well it turns out that Sue may just be the adopted one since it has been announced that House of Cards‘ standout Reg. E. Cathey has joined the cast as Dr. Storm, the scientist patriarch of the family.

stormThe Hollywood Reporter has learned that Cathey (barbeque master Freddy Hayes in the mega-popular House of Cards) has joined up with the film as Dr. Storm. Cathey also starred in The Wire, so Fantastic Four serves as a reunion of sorts for the actor and Jordan, since Jordan got his start on the smash-hit HBO series. No other details about Dr. Storm‘s role were revealed in THR‘s article, so we can only imagine what role the good doctor will play in the new series. How exactly Sue Storm joined the family will be explained later on as well. What do you think about the new addition to the cast? The film is set for a June 19, 2015 release and also stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, and Toby Kebbell as Victor von Doom.
