Very interesting casting choice for Netflix's upcoming Lost In Space series....
Netflix and Legendary’s upcoming reboot of Lost in Space is still over a year away, but we’re very excited about the latest addition to the cast: Parker Posey has signed on to play Doctor Smith!
The new Lost in Space will retain the same basic premise of the original series with a modernized tone and updated characters. In Irwin Allen’s classic show from 1965, the Robinson family of space explorers found themselves hopelessly adrift in the universe thanks to the sabotage of Doctor Zachary Smith. Unfortunately for Dr. Smith, he was unable to escape the Robinson’s ship, the Jupiter 2, before he was trapped on board as well.
I, for one, am very excited about this news. Parker Posey is awesome in just about anything she does and she's always fun to watch.
And to the purists who are complaining that a man should have been cast in this role...
The show premieres in 2018.
