TNT's The Alienist Cast

Matt Letscher, most recently seen in The Flash has been announced, joining the cast of The Angel of Darkness, the limited series sequel to last year’s The Alienist.  Letscher has been cast as media tycoon William Randolph Hearst. A television staple in many series, Letscher has been a part of the Legends of Tomorrow, Scandal, and Boardwalk Empire. Letscher will join original cast members Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning. Also returning will be Douglas Smith, Matthew Shear, and Robert Ray Wisdom.

For those who’ve seen The Alienist, you might remember the character of Joanna, Cyrus’s niece. Brittany Batchelder, who was just a guest star in the original limited series, has been promoted to a recurring role for The Angel of Darkness. Last we saw, Joanna was graduating from college. We will see her come to New York with aspirations of becoming a journalist and being under the tutelage of Evans’ character, John Moore.
