British newcomer CAMERON CUFFE is playing Seg-El, Superman’s Grandfather, in Syfy’s KRYPTON series. The series will follow him as he tries to redeem his family’s honor. CUFFE is heard speaking in the trailer to his grand son, Superman, and it seems as the series could be a message that was left for Superman in the Fortress of Solitude. Although not much was revealed in this trailer it has definitely peeked my interest for the series. Now if they could let us know the release date then I can plan my DVR accordingly!
Syfy’s KRYPTON, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. KRYPTON is an American television pilot episode developed by David S. Goyer and Damian Kindler for Syfy. It will star CAMERON CUFFE, GEORGINA CAMPBELL, IAN McELHINNEY, ELLIOT COWAN, ANN OGBOMO, RASMUS HARDIKER, WALLIS DAY, and AARON PIERRE. Air date TBD.
