Actor Colin Woodell has joined the cast of The Continental, the upcoming prequel series of John Wick.
The series also stars Mel Gibson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Jessica Allain, Mishel Prada, Nhung Kate, and Ben Robson.
The show will focus on the inner workings of the titular hotel, which serves as a refuge for assassins of the world. It will explore the origin behind the hotel-for-assassins through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott, who is dragged into the Hell-scape of a 1975 New York City to face a past he thought he'd left behind.
Woodell will play the young Winston Scott, a character played by Ian McShane in the film series. Gibson was announced to play a character named Cormac.
The Continental is written by Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward, who also serve as showrunners and executive producers. Chad Stahelski, Derek Kolstad, David Leitch, Shawn Simmons, Paul Wernick, and Rhett Reese all serve as executive producers. Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee of Thunder Road Pictures will also executive produce.
Woodell was last seen in the hit HBO Max series The Flight Attendant. His other TV credits include The Purge, The Originals, Masters of Sex, and Designated Survivor. On the feature side, he starred in The Call of the Wild and Unfriended: Dark Web.
