Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza to headline Marvel's 'Legion' on FX
Stevens plays David, a diagnosed schizophrenic whose life changes when he meets a girl. Plaza plays his friend Lenny, a drug and alcohol abuser with "the likeable energy of the impossible optimist despite her rough demeanor," according to a release. Smart plays a therapist, and Keller plays the prickly but street smart Syd.
The pilot was written by Noah Hawley (Fargo), who serves as executive producer alongside Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory — all of whom have ties to X-Men and other Marvel properties — and fellow Fargo producer John Cameron.
