Extrapolations – Apple Tv+’s climate change drama adds Edward Norton

Posted Filed under

The former Incredible Hulk joins the stellar cast of Scott Z. Burns’ environmentally conscious anthology series. 

As if the roster of talent for Extrapolations, which already includes Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, Kit Harrington, David Schwimmer, Forest Whitaker, Marion Cotillard and Tobey Maguire wasn’t impressive enough, Apple TV+’s upcoming show has announced some further high-profile names.

Edward Norton (Fight Club, The French Dispatch) has boarded the show playing a scientist. Presumably one who doesn’t go green when he gets angry – well, not green in colour anyway!

He’s joined by Indira Varma (Torchwood, Game of Thrones) as an inventor and Keri Russell (The Americans, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) as a gun for hire.

Also announced are Cherry Jones (Succession) playing the US President Elizabeth Burdick and The Many Saints of Newark‘s Michael Gandolfini who’ll play a computer programmer, who is the son of Edward Norton’s character.

A Green Future?

Extrapolations promises to tell intimate, unanticipated stories about how the upcoming changes to the planet will affect love, faith, work and family. Created, written and directed by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion), the story plays out over eight interconnected episodes. We’re imagining it as Apple’s answer to Amazon’s Modern Love, but with a scary green conscience.

Media Res is making the with writer Scott Z. Burns executive producing along with Michael Ellenberg, Dorothy Fortenberry, Gregory Jacobs and Lindsey Springer.

With all this casting news, courtesy of THR, we’re increasingly expecting big things! As ever, we’ll keep you posted.
