Ryan Fletcher And Hainsley Lloyd Bennett Set As Series Regulars In 'Pennyworth' For Epix

Recommended Posts

Ryan Fletcher and Hainsley Lloyd Bennett have been cast as series regulars in the upcoming EPIX drama series Pennyworth.  This casting news comes a day after the announcement of Jack Bannon being cast in the lead role of Alfred Pennyworth and Ben Aldridge being cast in the lead role of Thomas Wayne.

Fletcher and Bennett will portray "Dave Boy" and "Bazza," respectively; both are lifelong friends of Alfred's from their army days serving in the same corps.  Dave Boy, a haggard Highland Scotsman who is slowly drinking himself to death since leaving the army, is a close ally of Alfred and Bazza and also the most unpredictable of the trio.  Bazza, a posh Bajan playboy, is highly proficient at logistics and a valued member of Alfred's team.

The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne's legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who's not yet Bruce's father, in 1960s London.

The Pennyworth drama is from Executive Producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon with production to begin on Monday, October 22, 2018 at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, in the UK.

Well, I can’t say I’m readily familiar with either of them... But, I’m going to be highly curious to take a look at this series when it debuts. Alfred is a character that has always fascinated me — with all of the interesting aspects to his history before being Bruce’s caregiver. Even if they are overly milking every last aspect of the Bat-family canon, at this point.
