I'm a pretty big fan of his actually. He's great in American Gods and had a great role in last year's Den of Thieves. He's a big dude and knows his way around some action.

Well, they could easily dub him since the Chief never takes his helmet off, doesn't he?

He does. You just never see his adult face in the games.

The Eighth Passenger

But that would be like Judge Dredd taking his helmet off. Totally unacceptable!

Weird casting, guy's hardly 7-8ft tall.

Forced perspective?

Digital chief or a stand in when the helmets on.

He didn't look tiny in den of thieves.

I think he'll do great.

They can just give him a box to stand on. Like they do with runts like Tom Cruise etc.

QuoteShowtime's long-anticipated Halo TV series just announced five new cast members — including two who are playing characters familiar to players of the Xbox franchise.

First up among the new castmembers is Natascha McElhone (Californication) who will play two characters in the show: "Dr. Catherine Halsey, the brilliant, conflicted and inscrutable creator of the Spartan supersoldiers and Cortana, the most advanced AI in human history, and potentially the key to the survival of the human race."

Next is Bokeem Woodbine, who was an Emmy nominated scene-stealer in Fargo season 2, who will play "Soren-066, a morally complex privateer at the fringes of human civilization whose fate will bring him into conflict with his former military masters and his old friend, the Master Chief."

Plus the show is introducing three characters that are new to the Halo universe: Shabana Azmi (Fire) will play Admiral Margaret Parangosky, the head of the Office of Naval Intelligence, Bentley Kalu (Avengers: Age of Ultron), "Spartan Vannak-134, a cybernetically augmented supersoldier conscripted at childhood who serves as the defacto deputy to the Master Chief," Natasha Culzac (The Witcher) as "Spartan Riz-028 – a focused, professional and deadly, cybernetically enhanced killing machine," and Kate Kennedy (Catastrophe) as "Spartan Kai-125, an all-new courageous, curious and deadly Spartan supersoldier."

They join Pablo Schreiber (American Gods), who was previously announced as starring as the Master Chief Spartan John-117.

According to Showtime, Halo "will take place in the universe that first came to be in 2001, dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future."

The Halo series was in development for five years before being greenlit a year ago. Showtime has dubbed it the cable network's "most ambitious series ever."

The show will air in the first quarter of 2021.

I'm surprised they didn't just go with Jen Taylor, but McElhone certainly looks the part. I can buy that.

I don't really recognize the helmet design, it almost looks a bit like the Silent Storm helmet?

Looks like Chief's Halo 4 helmet to me.
