Comicbook.com have gotten the exclusive that the Canadian actor has been cast as the lead in “Solis.“ Ogg will be playing Troy Holloway, an engineer of an astroid mining company who, after an accident, is left in an escape pod hurtling towards the sun.
Ogg is best known for getting his big break as raving maniac Trevor Philips in the video games “Grand Theft Auto V.“ He has since gotten more attention on television for his roles as Sobchak in AMC‘s “Better Call Saul“ and as Simon in “The Walking Dead, and in HBO‘s “Westworld” as Rebus. He will next be seen in the thriller “Oragami” and then the drama “Black Dog, Red Dog” opposite to James Franco.
