Star Trek: Discovery has cast its Captain Pike.
According to Variety, actor Anson Mount will take on the role of Captain Christopher Pike during Discovery‘s second season. The character is the Captain of the USS Enterprise, teased at the end of the show’s first season.
Mount most recently appeared in the role of Black Bolt in Marvel’s poorly received, Inhumans. Mount’s casting pretty much confirms that Inhumans has been cancelled – if you hadn’t guessed already.

Star Trek: Discovery airs on CBS All Access in the US and on Netflix everywhere else.
