'The Tomorrow People': Luke Mitchell nabs role in CW pilot
The CW has found another one of its Tomorrow People.
EW has learned that actor Luke Mitchell has scored a role in the forthcoming pilot from Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec. Mitchell, who has appeared on a few television series in his native Australia, will play John Young, a member of the Tomorrow People — a term used on the show to refer to a group of young people who have reached the next stage of human evolution and use their special powers to defeat foes. His character is said to have a specialty in teleportation and will be instrumental in recruiting other gifted people to the group.
The CW ordered the pilot, inspired by the original 1970s UK cult series, last month.
Peyton List (Mad Men) was cast on the show earlier this week.
