Deadline reported, Stephan James has been cast as the male lead opposite Julia Roberts in Homecoming.
Produced by Universal Cable Productions, Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot) and Anonymous Content are spearheading the half-hour drama. It already has a two-season-series order at Amazon.
James will play a civilian who’s assigned to Roberts’ character Heidi. He’s a young military veteran with a wicked humor. Created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, Homecoming is a pyschological thriller.
