Director Darren Aronofsky took to Twitter this morning to reveal that he has cast the legend Nick Nolte as Samyaza, who in the Book of Enoch is the leader of a group of angels called Watchers.
The role of one of the supernatural creatures was filled by ‘Breaking Bad‘ co-star Mark Margolis and since the film is scheduled to hit theaters in a couple of months, Nolte will probably be voicing the character, and not actually playing him.
Aronofsky also tweeted an image of the actor (below) so you can see some sort of rock creature behind Nolte, which might be how Samyaza appears in this biblical epic.
Aronofsky’s Biblical drama Noah also stars Russell Crowe as the title character, ‘a man chosen by God for a great task before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world,’ along with Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, and Anthony Hopkins.
The film opens March 28th, 2014.
