Ian Ziering in Sharknado

The Asylum; Syfy Films



"Swamp Thing" has added another actor.

"Sharknado" star Ian Ziering has joined the cast, Deadline reports. He'll play Daniel Cassidy, a former stuntman and actor whose career has died down after playing the demonic Blue Devil. It's a recurring role in the DC Universe series.

"Swamp Thing" is based on the comics series created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightston. The cast already includes Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, a woman investigating a Louisiana swamp; Andy Bean as biologist Alec Holland; and Derek Mears, who plays Holland after he transforms into the Swamp Monster. Other actors involved include Maria Sten, Jennifer Beals, Jeryl Prescott, Virginia Madsen, and Will Patton.

The series is written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, both of whom are executive producing alongside director Len Wiseman, James Wan, and Michael Clear. It comes from Atomic Monster and Warner Bros. Television, and it is set to stream on the DC Universe digital subscription service in 2019.

Ziering comes to the project having most recently starred in Syfy's Sharknado movie series. He is also well-known for his role on the hit '90s drama "Beverly Hills 90210."
