Halloween's Will Patton has been cast in DC Universe's Swamp Thing TV series according to Deadline.

Patton will reportedly play Avery Sunderland. In comic books, Sunderland is the businessman who runs the company for which Alec Holland - the scientist destined to become Swamp Thing - works.

Here's how Deadline describes the show's version of the character: "As its most prominent businessman, Avery Sunderland serves as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit."

The show is expected to debut in 2019 on the DC Universe streaming service.
