Star Trek Discovery: James Frain cast as Spock’s father

It looks like Star Trek: Discovery has found their Vulcan.

But, not just any Vulcan. CBS has announced actor James Frain has been cast as Sarek. Yes, Spock’s dad. Star Trek Discovery is set a decade before the original series, which makes sense since Sarek will be played by Frain.

Production on the series begins next week in Toronto, but may not premiere until next May 2018, according to Variety. The series was originally supposed to premiere in January 2018.

Frain, who typically plays villain roles (True Blood, Gotham, Agent Carter, Orphan Black), will join Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead), Anthony Rapp (RENT), and Doug Jones (The Strain), Michelle Yeoh, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif, and Mary Chieffo on set next week.

Star Wars Discovery will premiere on CBS, with subsequent episodes released exclusively on CBS All-Access.
