Ben Aldridge & More Join the Cast of Pennyworth


Ben Aldridge has signed on to co-star in the upcoming EPIX drama Pennyworth, with Ryan Fletcher and Hainsley Lloyd Bennett also joining the cast as series regulars.

Based on characters from the DC universe, the 10-episode show tells the story of Alfred Pennyworth before he became a butler. Aldridge (Fleabag) will play Thomas Wayne. Fletcher (Shetland) and Bennett (Casualty) will portray Dave Boy and Bazza, respectively; both are lifelong friends of Pennyworth from their days in the army.

Warner Horizon Scripted Television’s Pennyworth comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (Gotham) and executive producer/director Danny Cannon (Gotham). Production will begin later this month in the U.K.
