Amazon Prime’s Fallout live-action series has found its first performer. Via Deadline, Walton Goggins has been cast in a leading role on the show. Goggins’ character hasn’t been fully confirmed, but Deadline states that “he is believed to be playing Ghoul.” Within the games, Ghouls are humans with grotesquely mutated appearances.
The first Fallout video game launched in 1997 from Bethesda Softworks. The games take place in a post-apocalyptic future as envisioned through the lens of a late ’40s aesthetic. There have been four games in the core series, as well as spinoffs like Fallout 76.
Goggins is best known for his leading role on Justified, as well as his turns in The Hateful Eight, The Shield, and Django Unchained. He also had a role as one of the secondary villains of Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Westworld co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are executive producing Amazon’s Fallout series. Nolan is also slated to direct the pilot episode. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner will be the showrunners on the series. Kilter Films’ Athena Wickham will also executive produce the series alongside Bethesda’s Todd Howard and James Altman.
Fallout will begin filming later this year. So expect more casting news in the near future.
