Hung and Punisher Star Thomas Jane to Star in Syfy's

The Punisher is Syfy bound, as actor Thomas Jane signs on to The Expanse, a new 10 part space opera based on the best-selling book series, and premiering in 2015.

The Expanse is a thriller set two hundred years in the future. The series follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

Jane is set to take on the role of the world-weary Detective Miller, a native of “the Asteroid Belt” between Mars and Jupiter.

Miller portrays a detective for a corporate security force operating as the law in The Belt. Ragged, in search of something even he can’t identify, Miller remains a dedicated cop with great instincts who discovers a newfound sense of purpose when he’s put in charge of the investigation into a missing heiress.

In a statement this week, Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Original Content, Syfy, said: “Thomas Jane is exactly the type of high caliber actor we hoped this project would attract. The intelligence and nuance he brings to every performance is perfect for the role of Miller.”

Jane’s other roles of note include Hung, Boogie NightsThe Mist, Dream Catcher, Deep Blue Sea and Thin Red Line among many more.
