Dan Stevens is headed back to TV. And he’s entering the Xverse.
Indeed, the erstwhile Downtoner has landed the lead on FX’s upcoming Legion, playing David Heller, the mentally ill son of Professor X.
Jean Smart (FX’s Fargo) will play his therapist, while Dirty Grandpa’s Aubrey Plaza has been tapped for the role of David’s upbeat pal Lenny.
Xverse overlords Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg are also on board, as executive producers.
