Demian Bichir has been cast in Alien: Covenant. According to Deadline, the Academy Award Nominee actor will be joining the cast of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel:

“Demian Bichir has been set by Ridley Scott to join the cast of Fox’s Alien: Covenant, the sequel to the Scott-directed Prometheus.”

Bichir was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor for A Better Life. He is also well known for his role in the FX television series The Bridge as Detective Marco Ruiz. He recently appeared alongside many notable actors in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight as Bob.

Bichir joins Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride in Alien: Covenant. No details regarding his character are available yet. Aside from David and the name of Katherine Waterson’s character (Daniels) very little is known about the characters in the film.

The Deadline article does reference Noomi Rapace as returning but late January it was revealed by Ridley Scott that Rapace would not be re-appearing in Alien: Covenant. It is quite likely this was merely a mistake.

Thanks to Joel Foster and Gazz for the news.

    All these actors have the normal look of a normal worker kinda guy,
    so Ridley is going for the hard working look guys like in Alien.

    I also speculated on that possibility in McBride's thread. Bichir's inclusion seems to strengthen that theory. No pretty boys and girls here like in Prometheus, at least so far. Fassbender is a bot so he doesn't count.

    Se we can expect a kind of reboot of Alien but with more gore and more mystery.

    I'm hoping for a similar grunge and biomechanical aesthetic but a completely different kind of story.
    More in depth of the real engineers and the xeno's more mystery more creepy enviroments,
    give it a nice big two hour movie at least.
    Undefineable Gigeresque statues and enviroments, things we dont understand with our logics.

    I feel the same, I do hope for a nice dose of horror this time out, was sorely missed in Prometheus.

    Cos i dont see those guys as Rambo's or Hicks and Hudson's so i can fairly say these are simple people,
    getting prept for an ass whooping of bibicle proportions.

    Curious to see how he fairs in the film, perhaps in a role like Ash, Burke, Vickers or Peter Weyland, a face of the company with their own ulterior motive like Wobblyboddle77 had suggested. Too early to tell though.

    Well this is interesting casting, a potential antagonist, maybe a Weyland employee or a colonist on the covenant ship with his own agenda? Deadline are also stating Noomi Rapace is in the film casting. I don't know how accurate deadline are, but i'm liking all the casting for Alien Covenant.
