Ben Joins The Cast of ‘Shadow and Bone’

Ben has joined the cast of Netflix’s ‘Shadow and Bone’, an 8 episode series based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Six of Crows’. Ben will play General Kirigan, the commander of a magical military elite in Bardugo’s fantasy world.

In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Never heard of the books… *lol* Actually, I was hoping for something different as a new project (still hoping for a role in a Broadway musical one day! :D)
It’s always tricky to tackle a book adaptation, but good luck to Ben on this new role! He’s gonna shine in it and steal the show, like he did in The Punisher! ;)
Big question though: beard or no beard for The Darkling? :p
