Krypton: Where Were They Before

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - 16:01

Ever watch a TV show and go, "Hey, that guy / girl / dog looks SO familiar!" but you just can't seem to place where they're from? Well, we're preemptively solving that problem for you by reminding you where the cast of Krypton was BEFORE they landed on the planet of Kandor and found themselves knee deep in a turf war, where fighting for prominence within a guilded hierarchy is the name of the game.
You can see where the cast is headed when Krypton premieres TOMORROW at 10/9c but first, let's take a stroll down memory lane...

Cameron Cuffe

•    The Halcyon (2017)
•    Time After Time (2017)

In Krypton he plays Seg-El, Superman's grandson. Seg is tasked with bringing hope and equality to his planet and ours or else the future is f#cked. So... no pressure.

•    Dark Matter (2015 - 2017)
•    Final Destination 2 (2003)
 

In Krypton Shaun plays Adam Strange, a world-weary, time-traveler who becomes an unlikely mentor to Seg-El. So...it's like being assigned interplanetary jury duty without the lunch stipen.
