Jason Flemyng has been cast as a villain named Lord Harwood for Epix's Pennyworth. The character is apparently a new character, not from comic books.

"Lord Harwood is upper class Englishman; he’s cultured, urbane, brilliant and supremely sure of himself," describes Epix of the character. "His sadistic, cruel nature has a veneer of charm."

Flemyng is best known for his role as Thomas Button in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but has also appeared in numerous comic book adaptations including X-Men: First Class (as Azazel), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Dr. Henry Jekyll/Mr. Edward Hyde), From Hell (John Netley), Kick-Ass (Lobby goon), and Gemma Bovery (Charles Bovery).

Pennyworth is currently filming in the United Kingdom, supervised by Gotham's Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon. No debut date has been set.
