"Extrapolations" adds five more names to the cast

It just keeps getting bigger and better. Of course I have no idea to what extent all these actors are going to interact with each other, but I've thought for a long time how great it would be if Meryl could work with Edward Norton. Now she may get that chance. Deadline is reporting that Norton, along with Cherry Jones, Keri Russell, Michael Gandolfini and Indira Varma have joined the cast of the Apple TV+ series Extrapoloations. 

All of the new members have a brief character description in the article, which continues to leave Meryl as the only one about whose role we have zero details. Would love if we could get a snippet soon of what we might be able to expect from her character. 

The climate change anthology series is currently in production.

  1. You can't have Meryl and give her a second rate role!

    1. I tend to agree, but with so many cast members not all of them can have large parts. Maybe Streep just has a minor part like a lot of the other actors and she just wanted to be in it for the message.

      Although it seems more likely that she'll have a main role, considering her character info is under wraps and she was one of the first batch of stars revealed.

  2. I am trying not to get my hopes up...because my gut keeps telling me "oh, she'll probably just end up being an omniscient narrator or something."

    But I desperately hope for something meaty.
