Bokeem Woodbine is headed from North Dakota to New York City.

EW has learned that the season 2 Fargo star has signed on for Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, joining Tom Holland as the web-slinging Peter Parker.

Details about Woodbine’s character are being kept under wraps, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Woodbine might be joining Michael Keaton and Logan Marshall-Green as one of the film’s villains.

Production on Spider-Man: Homecoming began earlier this week when cast members began filming in Atlanta. (Holland posted a celebratory Instagram from the set to mark his first day of shooting.) The film has been rapidly filling out its cast in recent weeks, adding Donald Glover, Michael Mando, Abraham Attah, Hannibal Buress, and Martin Starr in unspecified roles. Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei are also on board as Iron Man and Aunt May, and the cast also includes Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, and Michael Barbieri.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
