One of Hollywood’s top actors is dipping his feet in the streaming pool. Chiwetel Ejiorfor, star of Locked Down and The Old Guard, is set to play the title role in a TV series based on The Man Who Fell to Earth. Via :

Chiwetel Ejiofor will succeed David Bowie as the new Man Who Fell to Earth. The Oscar-nominated 12 Years a Slave actor has been tapped as the lead of Paramount+’s series based on the Walter Tevis novel and Nicolas Roeg’s cult classic 1976 film starring Bowie. Co-written and executive produced by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, The Man Who Fell To Earth will follow a new alien character, played by Ejiofor, who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future.

I’ve suddenly become a fan of CBS All Access…I mean Paramount+.
