James McAvoy Joins 'Logan's Dafne Keen In 'His Dark Materials'
Also joining the project: Clarke Peters of "The Wire," "Treme" and "Person of Interest." He'll play the man who raises Lyra (Keen), since her dad is stuck in a parallel universe.
They join already announced star Lin-Manuel Miranda, who'll play balloonist Lee Scoresby.
The miniseries (like "The Golden Compass") is based on Philip Pullman's fantasy epic "His Dark Materials."
And, ICYMI, McAvoy will also star as the grown-up Bill in the eagerly anticipated sequel to "It."
