Actors Ryan Fletcher and Hainsley Lloyd Bennett have joined the cast of Epix's Pennyworth, an Alfred-centric Batman prequel.
Fletcher and Bennett will play "Dave Boy" and "Bazza," respectively. They are described as "lifelong friends of Alfred’s from their army days serving in the same corps."
Fletcher's "Dave Boy" is described as "a haggard Highland Scotsman who is slowly drinking himself to death since leaving the army," and "a close ally of Alfred and Bazza and also the most unpredictable of the trio."
Bennett's Bazza is "a posh Bajan playboy," who is "highly proficient at logistics and a valued member of Alfred's team."
Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller will also helm the 10-episode Pennyworth, which is expected to be released in 2019.
