Joel Kinnaman to star in new sci-fi series

The Swedish actor-turned Hollywood star Joel Kinnaman has been confirmed to have a leading role in the new science-fiction series that will be produced by Apple.

Little is known about the series, including its name, but Kinnaman will play Edward Baldwin, a NASA astronaut. This is no new genre to the Swedish actor, however, considering he just starred in the first season of the Netflix series Altered Carbon. He is also attached to the Amazon series adaptation of the film Hanna, also in the lead role. 

Kinnaman will star alongside Michael Dorman and Sarah Jones. 

The series is created, written and executive produced by Ron Moore.
