Timothy Olyphant has officially joined the cast of the highly anticipated Alien series, reuniting with creator Noah Hawley and FX. Olyphant, known for his recurring role in Fargo, will star alongside Sydney Chandler in Hawley's prequel to the Alien franchise. While details about Olyphant's character remain under wraps, sources believe that he will portray Kirsh, a synth who serves as a mentor and trainer to Chandler's character, Wendy. Wendy is a hybrid, possessing the mind and consciousness of a child but the body of an adult.

Olyphant joins the main cast that includes Alex Lawther as CJ, a soldier, Samuel Blenkin as Boy Kavalier, a CEO, Essie Davis as Dame Silvia, Adarsh Gourav as Slightly, and Kit Young as Tootles. The series, executive produced by Ridley Scott, takes place before the iconic character Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver, and marks the first time the Alien story unfolds on Earth, approximately 70 years into the future.
