Today, TV Line revealed the rest of the cast for Marvel and Hulu’s upcoming series The Runaways. This time they announced the actors who been cast as the evil parents of The Pride. They include James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Annie Wersching (24), Kevin Weisman (Alias), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives) and Ever Carradine (Major Crimes). As well as Ryan Sands (The Wire), Angel Parker (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Brittany Ishibashi (Emily Owens M.D.), James Yaegashi (Broadway’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and Kip Pardue (Ray Donovan). Surprisingly, there is no mention of Molly Hernandez’s parents in this list?
Never-the-less here are all the character descriptions for the parents:
Sands and Parker play Geoffrey and Catherine Wilder, parents to Alex (Rhenzy Feliz). He’s a hulking presence who can effortlessly shift from approachable father to intimidating strategist; she’s a successful lawyer, deliberate and calculating in both her words and actions.
Wersching and Pardue play Leslie and Frank Dean, parents to Carolina (Virginia Gardner). She’s a poised and skilled leader whose charisma draws in devoted allies and followers. He’s a former teen star who rode a short-lived movie career and is now teeming with insecurity.
Marsters and Carradine play Victor and Janet Stein, parents to Chase (Gregg Sulkin, Faking It). He’s an engineering genius who has lofty expectations for his son — and when they aren’t met, retribution can be fierce; she’s a perfect PTA mom harboring a brilliant mind of her own, and who longs for more from her life.
Weisman and Brannagh play Dale and Stacey Yorkes, parents to Gert (Ariela Barer). He’s a bioengineer whose deep love for his family oftentimes falls short as far as knowing the right things to say to his daughter. Stacey, too, is a bioengineer, and utilizes a more progressive approach to her parenting style.
Ishibashi and Yaegashi play Tina and Robert Minoru, parents to Nico (Lyrica Okano). She’s a perfectionist “tiger mom,” as well as a brilliant innovator and ruthless CEO; he is a gentle and brilliant beta, “the Woz to his wife’s Jobs.”
