Jennifer Beals is heading to the DC Universe.
The actress has joined the cast of Swamp Thing as Sheriff Lucilia Cable.
An original character created just for the show, Sheriff Cable is described as tough as nails and pragmatic, with fierce devotion to her son that is rivaled only by her sworn duty to serve and protect the town of Marais. As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, Lucilia must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.
Beals joins a cast that includes Gotham alum Crystal Reed and Maria Sten.
James Wan is producing the new series, set to debut in 2019 on the DC Universe digital streaming service, which launched earlier this month in the United States.
Beals has appeared in Amazon's The Last Tycoon, and The Chicago Code at NBC.
