The new Fantastic Four family just got a little bigger. THR reports Josh Trank has cast character actor Reg E. Cathey to play Dr. Storm, scientist and father to Johnny (Michael B. Jordan) and Sue (Kate Mara).
Cathey has shared screen credits but not actual screentime with both of his onscreen children before as a veteran of The Wire (where Jordan got his start) and Netflix's House of Cards (where Mara played reporter Zoe Barnes).
The rest of the Fantastic Four are made up of Miles Teller as Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm / The Thing, while Toby Kebbell plays their most famous foe, Doctor Doom. Filming is now underway in Louisiana.
It comes out on June 19th, 2015, with the sequel already set for July 14th, 2017
